Submission No Google Background Checks for Finnish Employers

An anonymous reader writes: The top Finnish privacy official has ruled that under the current privacy protection laws, employers generally are not allowed to do internet background searches on job candidates without the consent of the candidate. When consent is given and in cases where consent is not necessary, the employers must reveal the findings of such searches to the candidate.
