As organisations recognise the benefits of a flexible workforce, especially in the current economic climate, contractor working has grown significantly.

Is Verifiable, Signed Consent Required by the Majority of Education Institutes and Employers before they will Release Information about their Students or Employees, Past or Present?
As an international leader in employment screening, BackCheck is asked to verify the employment and education history of tens of thousands of individuals each year. To accomplish this task efficiently, BackCheck has assembled a database consisting of the verification policies for most of the major employers and almost all education institutions in the United Kingdom and North America. The overwhelming conclusion based on an analysis of BackCheck’s internal database, plus the published requirements of major employers and schools, is that signed, verifiable consent must be provided by the applicant before employers or education institutions will release historical information about their students or employees.
