When rolling out a global background screening program, it is important to understand local laws and restrictions. While some common background checks may be permissible in some countries, the same screenings may be illegal in other locations. Some locations are also significantly more challenging when it comes to the complexity of a background check. The absence of digitized organized records in some locations means manual checks must be completed, leading to additional risk due to losing a piece of the process. There are also cultural considerations to be aware of that are specific to various locations.
