Background check

As you know, many applicants are manipulating reality when creating their CVs. If you wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt as a token of welcome, you have no doubt already done so to your detriment, with a diploma for which only the level is obtained, disguised periods of unemployment and supporting documents that never arrive!

Today, your commitments to your employees and your certifications no longer allow you to tolerate this type of setback and you want to ensure the veracity of the content of the CVs of each person you wish to hire! That's why RH Lab. offers you a complete solution for checking their references without wasting time.

Background check

Reference checking, also known as background checking, is a method used at the end of the recruitment process as an aid to decision making.

This method consists of contacting a candidate’s former employers, but not only…

All information necessary for the execution of a contract or for the execution of pre-contractual measures taken by a candidate can also be checked on the basis of his/her prior written consent.

As reference checks in recruitment are not explicitly provided for in the Luxembourg Labour Code, RH Lab. relies on the Data Protection Act to reassure its clients that many aspects of the CVs of selected candidates are material.

At the end of our investigations, we will be able to offer you a succinct and intuitive report for a simplified and quick reading and an evaluation note of the reference check based on the following aspects:

The assessment score for reference taking is based on the following aspects:

  • Civil status
  • Judicial data
  • Work authorization
  • Professional experiences
  • Initial and continuing training
  • E-reputation
