In Argentina, pre-hire medical checks are required by law for certain jobs as determined by the Occupational Risk Superintendence. Foreign employees also need to undergo a criminal record check in order to obtain a work visa. However, criminal checks are only generally allowed for specific roles, such as high-level managerial positions, and reference and educational checks are common and permissible as long as the applicant has given their consent. It is important to note that if an employee does not complete a pre-hire medical check, they will be considered to have started their job in optimal health and any injuries or diseases that may arise in the future will be considered to have occurred during the employment relationship.
