No matter where your company is based out of or where your employees are coming from, you have to properly screen every individual who may become an employee, intern, volunteer, or temporary worker.
To do otherwise is to leave yourself vulnerable to a range of risks, including adding a potentially unstable element to your team. As more and more businesses go global, taking these types of risks becomes less acceptable.
Verifying information for international hires, however, is not easy. Different countries make use of different databases, plus there is often the language barrier you have to work through. Determining if a potential hire’s educational experience, criminal background, and driving record are clean can take much longer than it would to verify such information from an individual in the U.S.
