Pre-hire vetting from a data protection and employment law perspective

Allen & Overy, in collaboration with the British Chamber of Commerce, is pleased to invite you to an After-work Legal Event: "Pre-hire vetting from a data protection and employment law perspective" on Tuesday 27 September 2016.

Internal recruiter, external agency, recruitment process outsourcing (RPO),... whatever solution a company opts for, as requirements on the job increase, recruitment processes become more sophisticated and expensive. Against that background, the company wants to operate verifications on the individual to make sure it gets the recruitment right. The efforts undertaken in that framework are commonly referred to as pre-hire vetting:

  • Can the company contact the employee’s former university and employers to double-check the résumé?
  • Can the company ask questions about the employee’s financial situation, the medical background or family planning?
  • Can the company request a copy of the employee’s criminal record?

What happens if a verification brings an issue to light? Can the contract be cancelled?

These and many more questions will be dealt with by the speakers Catherine Di Lorenzo and Gilles Dall’Agnol, both Counsels within Allen & Overy, who will analyse the topic of pre-hire vetting from a data protection and employment law point of view.

To close the evening drinks and canapés will be provided and, as always, the opportunity to meet and discuss with the panellists and other guests.
