Why should U.S. employers conduct international background checks and verifications?
- Foreign Born U.S. Residents: The U.S. Census found there are 38.5 million foreign-born U.S. residents, representing 12.5 percent of the population, in October 2010.
- U.S. Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs): The Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) revealed 1,130,818 persons became Legal Permanent Residents of the U.S. in 2009.
- Unauthorized Immigrants: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimates 10.8 million unauthorized immigrants were residing in the U.S. in January 2009.
- U.S. Citizens Spending Time Abroad: Many U.S. citizens have spent time traveling on vacation or living, working, and attending school in a foreign country.
Due to the mobility of workers across international borders in a global economy, employers need to screen applicants outside of the United States. To get started, use the ‘Select Country’ drop down menu or Contact ESR Global Screening.
