DOT employee background checks ramp up with seasonal hires
The driver carousel typical of the transportation industry is in high gear this year, meaning DOT employee background checks as part of the hiring process can consume a significant amount of time. Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) offers employee background checks as a key service for employers looking to streamline administrative operations.
Employers nationwide have reduced workforces in record numbers due to the economic slowdown associated with the pandemic. Some of the 10 million unemployed people are filling openings behind the wheel and will require an employee background check.
Employee background checks as required by the DOT ensure your new hires have acceptable safety records and are qualified commercial drivers. These checks not only keep your business in compliance with government regulations, it also helps minimize driver-related accidents.
DOT employee background check is very thorough
Unlike a standard employment background check, a DOT employee background check delves specifically into a candidate's driving record. Most employers complete these checks prior to hiring a candidate as a safety measure, but you actually have 30 days after the new hire starts working for you.
A DOT employee background check requires a wide range of information including:
Meeting federal CDL drug testing requirements is another major administrative requirement for employers as well as owner-operators. WDTC offers a competitive pricing structure and simplified monthly invoicing that includes all employee background checks for the period.
Contact WDTC to reduce your administrative workload. New customers receive five complimentary criminal background searches.
