Hiring Contract Employees? Don’t Forgot to Ask About Background Checks.

Nick Fishman

I just read an article out of the Edmonton Sun about a city bus company that hired a driver through a contractor.  The driver subsequently was terminated and is sure to be prosecuted for molesting a child.  It turns out that the contractor never performed a background check(See full story)

This is a horribly regrettable situation, but hardly one that isn’t being repeated every single day.  Employers are forgetting to ensure that their contracted employees are being screened and if they are, they are not asking how and when they are being screened.

I just wrote an article about this exact topic and invite you to read it.
