    Default Crimes Abroad

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: any state

    A crime that is committed abroad like larceny does not transfer into U.S. records for employment background purposes, correct?

    No, they do not generally enter into any US database. However, as there are no cookie cutter backgrounds, there's no way to say whether an employer will or will not find out about criminal acts overseas.

    The good news is that there's no central "international" database nor do things transfer to some US government agency. The bad news is that depending on what country you're talking about, there are private investigation services that will conduct a criminal background check and find such. It's all a matter of how hard the employer wants to search.

    when we run our bg checks, it checks where a person has lived in a certain time period. If out of country, the checker asks us if we want to do the BG check in that country also....our answer is based on what we do and how long it's been since, but yes it can be requested and done... one should always read the authorization they are signing on a background check request.

    Our vendor has the ability to check many non-US countries on request.

    I have no idea what "transfer into U.S. records" might mean, but it will be rather uncommon for a U.S. employer to search for criminal records from other countries.

    What are non-US countries? You mean outside the US? I guess Canada can be conceivable...

    Any country other than the U.S.
