Criminal background checks are a key component in helping to protect your company, your customers and the general public at large from foreseeable harm. Negligent hiring claims are recognized in almost every state and are on the rise. These cases occur when an employer hires an employee who it knows, or by the exercise of reasonable care should have known, was incompetent or unfit for the job specified and thereby is a potential risk to others. Criminal background searches can be done for minimal cost and are invaluable when making hiring decisions and defending against negligent hiring claims. No transportation company today can afford to forego a criminal background check since one negative incident could be detrimental to the company’s brand and overall reputation in the industry.
