    Default Publicly Showing Employee Criminal Checks Online

    My question involves a background check in the State of: internet law/personal information
    Is it legal for a job search agency or employer to post personal information (including employee background/criminal checks) online if the employee has given them permission to do so? This is in the context of the employee/contractor being hired out by other companies for work. The job search agency has a list of available staff online and wondering if they can publicly post personal info for employers to search and select staff.
    US and Canadian perspective would be useful.

    Thank you.

    If we're talking about information that can be obtained from public records, it's public information.

    You will have to investigate for yourself whether you have additional privacy rights under the laws of your undisclosed state.
