Background Checks

A recent survey revealed that nine out of 10 employers perform background checks during the hiring process. The survey also revealed that all interviewed fleet owners perform background checks on prospective employees, regardless of how much they trust them. Fleet owners noted that hiring commercial drivers without performing a background check on them first can ultimately lead to penalties assessed by the Department of Transportation. Most companies that utilize commercial vehicles must obtain a fleet license, which can be revoked if an unqualified individual is hired. This is why performing background checks on all applicants is so important. And just like fleet owners review the background checks of commercial driving job applicants, so do individual motorists to should ensure that their background checks contain no inaccuracies. A background check with false details can cause them to miss out on lucrative opportunities.
