Human Capital Magazine has done a practical two part series on the legal implications surrounding criminal record searches (e.g. background checks) which underscores just how important it is to have a reputable provider with deep local knowledge and understanding of best practice. For example, in Australia only Tasmania and the Northern Territory ban the use of discrimination in hiring based on irrelevant criminal history. However, Human Capital recommends erring on the side of caution for those outside these areas because the courts may have a different opinion on what irrelevant means.
