Hi Meshack, 
My feeling is that at least they have the decency to ask her consent. This is because these kinds of investigations are happening whether we have been told they will or not. And the other perspective is that upon employment, we give out as much information as possible obviously because well, we need the job and we don\’t at that point hold back any information. So I wouldn\’t perceive it as the Company buying information…

A colleague of mine has just been given several consent forms to sign from HR. They pertain to allowing a company called Peleza to investigate her background.
–  Is this morally right that two companies can trade information (Private) for jobs?
–  Does it mean that this company literally buying private information about its employees to guarantee their retention?
