Mayer Brown launches new app on global background checks

29 April 2016

London - Mayer Brown today announced the launch of its latest app, A Global Guide to Background Checks, which gives users an overview of the legal and practical issues related to background checks in 50 jurisdictions across the Americas, Asia and EMEA.

The Guide’s intuitive design incorporates an "at-a-glance" traffic light system that enables users to see whether background checks are standard practice, unusual or prohibited in particular jurisdictions. It facilitates the quick identification and assessment of potential risks across regions and countries, making the app an invaluable reference tool for global employers reviewing their recruitment processes. In addition, it covers a broad range of background checks, from criminal record checks to drug and alcohol testing, and identifies the applicable conditions, restrictions and sanctions in each country.

The app, which is designed for iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android devices, can be downloaded free from the App Store and Google Play by searching Mayer Brown.

A Global Guide to Background Checks is also available as an ebook/web reader and interactive PDF via the Mayer Brown website.
