Criminal Background Checks
Hiring honest, dependable people is critical for any business, and non-negotiable for many. The process of checking criminal histories, however, can be a tricky one, with all kinds of privacy and confidentiality laws, rules and regulations to navigate. Those issues are only compounded when you are dealing with international candidates, or with prospective employees who have worked internationally.
Name changes, dealing with various law enforcement agencies and other factors can all add to the challenge of conducting thorough but legally compliant criminal background checks.
AIS can help you navigate the minefield of international and domestic criminal record checks.

One of the biggest issues for employers and prospective employers, when conducting background and criminal record checks is to ensure that they maintain the utmost in privacy and confidentiality.
