International background checks explored at SHRM 2012

Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) 2012 Annual Conference and Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia. ‘International Background Checks: Global Due Diligence and Legal Compliance’ will be presented by Attorney Lester Rosen, and the inclusion of this topic emphasizes how important a role background checks should be (and are) playing in HR. “Employment is no longer restricted by international borders, and due diligence now requires an understanding of international background checks. With the mobility of workers across international borders it is no longer adequate to conduct these checks just in the U.S.” said Rosen. This session introduces attendees to the international background check, including the legal, practical and cultural challenges you face when obtaining information outside of the U.S. Among the topics covered will be the ins and outs of international criminal records, terrorist databases, and whether background checks are needed on applicants with a visa. The SHRM 2012 Annual Conference & Exposition takes place June 24 to 27, 2012 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
