Re: Pre-employment Screening process

To the OP and others who go through a similar process: I had to consent to a background check here in the UK too for an office based job in a well-known Pharma company. It is not unique to Switzerland. The contract stated that my employment start is subject to a 'clear' finding of the background check.
I negotiated with my future employer in the UK that my start date will be 3 months 'after' the background check is completed. They agreed to it and I sent in my resignation in my previous job when the background check was done.

My point is: this is is not 'Switzerland' specific, but perhaps industry specific or company specific. Having said that, I did not have to do that in another Pharma country in a different country than UK, so perhaps it is company-specific.
