The difference between International and Global Screening

confusing when it comes down to background screening and pre-employment checks. As the world continues to become all the more global, with both legal and illegal migrant workers in the US increasing each year, such a distinction will become important knowledge. Hopefully this explanation will help you out… Global Screening refers to a candidate who is being screened and employed outside of the United States, as laws vary between different countries. A background check in Asia or South America would be very different to that in the US, and this type of screening will allow for that. International Screening is when a candidate will be employed within the US, but some of the information needed for the check requires information from another country. This may be significant for a worker who was born and lived in another country prior to the United States. As background checks get all the more important, Mind Your Business will be here to take you step by step through the key developments. If you have any more questions about background screening law and legislation, simply leave a comment and we’ll get back to you!]]>
