New Changes To Applicant Background Checks
Beginning February 1, 2017, employers in Luxembourg can request an applicant's criminal record certificate during the recruitment process or the course of an employment relationship.
Under new legislation, an individual must be informed of the request in writing, and the criminal record certificate cannot be kept for more than one month after an employment contract is signed. If the person is not hired, it must be destroyed immediately.
In addition, during the course of an employment relationship, employers can request Section 3 of an employee's criminal record certificate if the employee is transferred to a different position and the specific job requirements require a criminal record check.
