International Background Check

Your source for International Background Checks and Pre-Employment Screening

With the global economy expanding every year and more employers expanding their operations overseas, the need to offer services on an international basis is critical to a complete background screening process. To meet this need, Justifacts has partnered with several companies, who have demonstrated proven international expertise, in order to provide a seamless process to verify the backgrounds of employees who have resided or are currently residing in a foreign country.

Employers should be aware that when it comes to a international background check, the ability to access the same information that is available in the United States is limited. Every country is different when it comes to international background checks. For criminal records, record keeping, technology and availability of public records are varied throughout the world and can present significant challenges to obtaining a comprehensive background check. Additionally, many countries have privacy laws that differ from the United States and limit what information can be obtained by third parties.

At Justifacts, we take extra steps to research various country regulations and requirements pertaining to personal data for employment screening purposes. Simply because data can be obtained, does not mean that data can or should be used for employment screening purposes. Data protection and privacy laws vary from country to country. Even within a country, laws may be different among the various jurisdictions. For example, Canada has jurisdictional differences based on province.

Our international background check solution is determined by careful, ongoing reviews by Justifacts, We continually receive input from our internationally experienced consultants, who have developed best practice programs including information from inside and outside counsel and reviews conducted by our global network of in-country trusted partners.
