EMPLOYMENT BACKGROUND CHECKS
AS A BACKGOROUND CHECK COMPANY, WE ARE OFTEN ASKED IF WE CAN PROVIDE INTERNATTIONAL BAXKGROUND CHECKS.
National Employment Screening can provide all available international employment background checks.
Very comparable to what we find in American background checks. Sophisticated and modern record keeping of felonies and misdemeanors.
Excellent records but fingerprints are required and can take up to 90 days. Also the applicant can get his/her own records for free from any R.C.M.P. office and many other Canadian police agencies.
Of course if they have a bad record they probably won’t come back and give it to you.
The state controls everything so you only get to see what the state wants you to see. There is absolutely no reliable way to insure that the person you think you are hiring is really who you think they are. This is a real issue for companies trying to hire Chinese citizens for positions requiring a security clearance.
The French do not consider criminal records to be public records and are therefore simply not available.
Since there is no way of finding out about criminal records on French citizens many employers are forced to assume all French applicants may have a criminal record but since they can’t determine what it is they just won’t hire French citizens.
If the French people gave more thought to this perhaps they would want to change their laws on this.
If you really need a background check on a French resident Call the French Embassy in Washington D.C. to see if they have changed their rules on this matter.
Their number is (202) 944-6000
Improving but unsophisticated
Japan: Same as France. However, they will allow the applicant to get a copy of the records themselves.
Philippines: Same as France. However, they will allow the applicant to get a copy of the records themselves. Now, the challenge is to make sure the documents are authentic.
Taiwan: Same as France. However, they will allow the applicant to get a copy of the records themselves. Now, the challenge is to make sure the documents are authentic.
These countries issue a Certificate of Behavior.
I t tells you that the person has, or doesn’t have a criminal record, but unfortunately for an employer and an applicant it doesn’t tell you what the criminal record is!
Criminal records or the lack of them from Mexico are always suspect. While some states in Mexico are better than others and some are actually improving the quality of their records they are not totally reliable.
