Notify the selected employee

Once you have selected an employee, notify them first. At the same time, agree on how you will proceed with practical matters and when the work is to begin.

Also remember to:

  • notify applicants you did not select. In most cases, applicants will appreciate if you justify your choice. Those invited to the interviews should also be given constructive feedback on their success.
  • remove the job advertisement from the places you posted it.

Investigating the background of the selected employee

Once you have selected a suitable employee among the applicants, you can commission additional investigations on their background. The costs arising from the investigation are the responsibility of the employer.

The applicant must be notified in advance of the investigation and some investigations also require the applicant’s consent.

An employment contract can also be made conditionally, in which case the agreement can be cancelled if the results of the investigations reveal matters that prevent employment.
