More and more employers are carrying out background checks on their workforce, whether to meet legal and regulatory standards or to mitigate internal risks.

Workers who have lived, worked or studied abroad provide welcomed diversity to the workforce but can present added complexity for an employer's background screening program.

The GDPR raises the bar for data protection compliance for companies, whether they are inside or outside the EU. More importantly, the GDPR provides the primary framework for how background checks on European employees must be carried out. With fines of up to the higher of €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover, it is crucial to get compliance right.

Suitable for HR managers, data protection officers, and security and risk teams alike, this Bird & Bird workshop will equip you with the knowledge of the data protection and employment law considerations and how they apply to your background screening programme.

Joining our Bird & Bird speakers will be speakers from Sterling and FirstAdvantage, two global background screening providers, who will share tips on structuring your screening programme and working with an external screening partner.
