You have been invited to take part in a standard and confidential verification programme. Please find below a list of frequently asked questions and answers, which will provide you further information.

A verification program allows your employer to verify and validate that you are THE right person for his organization and the role to be filled, and/or comply with its internal recruitment policies.
Depending on your position and your role in the organization, your employer has identified a number of points to verify and validate about your background, your skills and/or your personality. In your personalized and secure web interface, for which you will be sent the access details by Aequivalent SA, you will have a complete view of the elements that will be verified for you.
Aequivalent has been mandated by your employer to conduct the verifications and to establish an independent and objective report, and also to assist you during this process. If deviations are identified, Aequivalent will publish them in its report and your employer might ask you additional questions. Aequivalent is mandated to conduct the verifications but it is your employer who will decide on the follow-up that will be given to the report.
Under Swiss Law, an employer has a legitimate interest to collect and verify information about an employee as long as he only collects information that is relevant for the employee’s ability to perform the role. Therefore, your consent is legally speaking not required prior to being screened.
Although your employer has the legal right to verify information, Aequivalent will ask you your explicit agreement before starting the verification process. This agreement makes sure that you are informed about the screening on behalf of your employer and, on the other hand, is necessary to collect information from third parties (criminal record, universities, referees, ...) or establish a personality profile
Yes. Your employer has established a screening policy and uses the services of Aequivalent to ensure that the process is done as good as possible. But if you do not want information be collected about you, you have the right to refuse. However, the consequence of your refusal might be that you will not be employed. If you are considering to refuse to participate to the verification program, we advice you to discuss this with your employer first.
Your data is processed by Aequivalent on behalf of your employer that decides about its treatment. Therefore, please contact your employer for any question related to the verification results. Aequivalent is certified ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and only uses your data and documents for this specific and unique verification programme. Aequivalent automatically deletes all your data and documents within 90 days after the delivery of the report to your employer. You can request an earlier deletion of your data, at any time, via your personal access to the platform.
