Region Specific Insights


The EMEA region represents a broad range of employment, human rights and data privacy legislation that impacts the background screening process. Requiring background checks in Europe is increasingly popular and culturally acceptable whereas parts of Africa and the Middle East have been slower to adopt this trend.


Similar to EMEA, the APAC region has seen consistent growth in the use of employment background checks. With diverse laws, cultures and practices, it’s important for employers to carefully design their background screening program.


In Latin America (including the Caribbean and South America) background checks are in the beginning stages of widespread adoption. Employers commonly look to whether an applicant accurately conveyed his or her education and employment history, and occasionally conduct criminal and financial checks when related to the particular position.

North America

Background checks for employment purposes are common in Canada and Mexico, although the laws of each country vary quite significantly. However, both countries possess data privacy and human rights legislation employers should understand prior to implementing a background screening program.
