Companies are typically liable for employees when they drive for business purposes. Even a single employee-caused accident could increase your insurance rates or result in costly litigation and damage to your company’s reputation. To make more informed decisions when hiring commercial drivers, employers should review all applicable driver safety data before extending an offer of employment.
With the hike in number of crimes around the country involving kidnappings, extortion, smuggling, it creates an arrant need for verifying the credentials of the driver before he is hired by you. It is not necessary that the person you hire has committed a fraud in the past but as there is an old saying “Prevention is better than cure”, same precept can be applied in case of verification. A proactive approach to verify before trusting would be a better gamble.
