Hi everyone, I have been living in the Netherlands since December 2011. I recently accepted a new job here, with a financial services auditing company. The company has global reach but my role will be based here in Netherlands. My credit here is perfect as far as I know - I have credit cards and mobile phone and an overdraft, and always pay / have paid on time. I also now have a mortgage. But I think I have o/s defaults and CCJs in UK that I have not yet got around to paying - I mean to pay them when I am settled and more secure. I know my employer has to conduct a background check on me. What I'm worried about is... can they conduct a Netherlands and a UK credit check? I am worried that if they do conduct a UK check, I may be adversely affected, and my offer withdrawn, due to the CCJ/ defaults, even though I have been an exemplary credit payer here. I'm from Ireland originally but lived for a long time in Shrewsbury where I think the CCJ/ default are registered. I'd love to know the rules around global credit checks and the likelihood of them being conducted, if anyone knows? Thanks SO much in advance - this forum has been so useful for browsing in the past, and I hope to be able to reciprocate the help to people in time. Thanks DC78
Hi, I have a question pertaining to background or reference checks. I had an incident at my current employer. I had used an USB device to connect to my work laptop to the internet at home. My intention was to perform some work from home. Internet connection is necessary to connect to my work network. However, the USB device was a counterfeit device, it didn’t work and instead every time I tried to use it, it ran sum inappropriate programmes and files. I had no idea of this till HR told me that they found some inappropriate activity on my work laptop. My employer tracks all activities on work laptop. In light of this finding my employer took disciplinary action and after a disciplinary committee meeting, they gave me a final stage 3 written warning. Now I am considering resigning from my job moving to a different company. I have an offer. But I am worried about the background check that the new employer will conduct. My entire career and academic history is spotless and excellent. I will also get strong reference from all my previous employers and educational institutions. But I am not sure how the reference from my current employer will appear. Does anyone know if my current employer will reveal this disciplinary warning to my future employers during background/reference checks? Any thoughts in how to approach this situation is much appreciated. Thanks, Jason
