Corra Group has added credit reports to its suite of services it provides for International Employment Screening. The credit reports are for job applicants who originate or currently live in the United Kingdom. A credit report can be used in support of other background checks to determine the suitability of an employment candidate.

“We are working to expand our international services for employment screening as well as due diligence and investigation,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. In addition to providing the United Kingdom credit report, criminal records searches and civil records searches, we are adding credit searches in countries where they are accessible.

“At Corra Group we make ourselves available to clients to discuss how best to proceed with background checks, whether the searches are for employment screening, due diligence, or investigation,” said Basichis. “There are compliance issues and the need to supply certain documentation for employment hires, where with due diligence, research, and investigation, there are limitations on access, depending on the country.”

Basichis pointed out that in addition to employment credit reports from the United Kingdom as well as international criminal searches and international civil records, Corra Group offers conducts international education verification and employment verification. He noted that new search types and services are being added regularly.

“For due diligence and investigation, Corra Group will soon be offering such services as open source intelligence and cyber profiling, Internet-related privacy & risk mitigation for high profile executives, and research into criminal misuse of social media and threats derived from geo-locational data,” said Basichis. “Through our partners, we will be able to conduct these services both domestically and globally.”

California is on a roll with new employment-related laws effective January 1, 2018. The latest relates to salary history disclosures by job applicants. There is essentially a complete prohibition on an employer, either orally or in writing, personally or through an agent, seeking salary history information, including compensation and benefits, about an applicant for employment.  This applies to all employers (private/public) and the only exception is publically available salary history information. Background screeners and employers take note and check out section 432.3 of California’s Labor Code.
