Interesting editorial piece in today’s published website, The Hill.  We thought some may be interested.

Legislators should stop mandating how Uber conducts background checks

After several years of tumultuous debate, the big questions surrounding the basic legality of ridesharing services like Lyft and Uber have essentially been resolved. In most major American cities, we now are free to pull out our smartphones and summon a ride to karaoke night without much hindrance.

But there are still some looming issues in state and local transportation policy, particularly over whether ridesharing companies should be required to run their drivers through federal fingerprint background checks before hiring them. In just the last year, we’ve seen heated debates over this question in AustinHoustonBostonMaryland and New York. The latest battleground is Connecticut, where the state legislature faces calls from the taxi and limousine commissions to include mandatory fingerprinting as part of a larger ridesharing regulation bill.

Corra Group is offering consultation to any clients wishing to conduct due diligence or investigative background checks. The searches can be conducted on domestic and global levels.

“We find that clients and potential clients are often unaware what is available to them for due diligence and investigative purposes,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. They may want to conduct research on an individual or a corporate entity, but they find the process confusing. They are not sure which searches would provide them with relevant information. We help them with their decisions. This is included as part of our service.

“At Corra Group we offer a full array of background searches, both domestically and globally,” said Basichis. “With clients, it is best to discuss their objectives, the information they hope to obtain, and then set them up with the appropriate searches so that they can best reach their goals.”

Basichis noted that Corra Group has clients in the United States and around the world. He added that some clients are global investigators and others are either corporate entities or law firms representing corporate entities looking to conduct due diligence.

“While there are typically a core group of searches a client will need to conduct for due diligence purposes there are a variety of optional searches that will be relevant for some clients and less so for others,” said Basichis. “Some clients just want to conduct the basics, the criminal and civil searches, while others desire reputational searches and more extended public records. Other clients need business credit reports when a corporate entity is involved in either the merger, the co-venture, or the investigation.”
