When hiring new workers in Australia it is critical to perform official, secure national police checks on individuals. However, the results of those checks do not include criminal history outside Australia.
Candidates bring new knowledge and skills as a result of international work experience, but they may have engaged in reportable criminal activity. Fraud and theft in the workplace costs Australian businesses up to $8.5 billion every year. This does not include the damage a bad hire can do to business relationships and brands.
An international police check fills in the blanks, giving employers confidence needed to make smart HR decisions.
WorkPro makes this possible with fast and secure international police checks for employers. Order, track and manage them online from the powerful WorkPro dashboard, with smart notifications to keep businesses in control of their hiring process.
It has never been easier for employers to hire the best talent for their roles, every time.
A WorkPro international police check searches the databases of the recognised police services and courts in the selected country. Availability and scope of results vary between jurisdictions. Where a criminal record cannot be provided, a recorded criminal history can be included.
The final report includes a detailed certificate with a full description of outcomes. For some countries, a police certificate is also provided.
Checks can be performed between any dates specified. It is recommended that employers verify criminal history from the past 10 years for all countries candidates have lived in for periods over 6 months.
To perform an international police check, the following details must be supplied to obtain results:
In some instances records can be accessed without some of the required information, depending on jurisdiction.
All international police checks are conducted via phone, email and fax through our international partners. The process is secure from start to finish. Additionally, the information provided is from official government bodies.
The WorkPro system also manages the security, archiving and destruction of information in accordance with national privacy standards and practices.
