   Corra Group is advising all employers, that in order to avoid liability issues, they should conduct motor vehicle driving records on all employees driving for the business during the holiday season. The MVR will go a long way to avoiding any missteps before putting a driver out on the road.

“It is a busy holiday season and employers need to hire drivers,” said Nick Gustavson, Corra Group Co-Founder. “Everyone is in a hurry to get their workers onboard. But unless you vet your drivers properly, you can encounter serious liability issues.”

“The Department of Transportation mandates that you run MVRS on new commercial drivers,” said Gustavson. “But it is not legally necessary to conduct driving records on non-commercial drivers. Not doing this is a mistake. Should the driver have an accident and injure someone, you, the employer, could be liable. If the driver you hired is driving on a suspended license, or has a driving record that makes him suspect or even insurable, the employer could have a major problem”

Corra Group is getting ready for the rush of seasonal employment screening, as employers prepare to hire staff for the holiday season. With the economy strong, retailers and other businesses that rely on this season for much of their revenue, tend to hire larger staffs that not only service the brick and mortar shops, but the larger demands facilitated by the American public’s expanded mode of online shopping.

“We are realizing a sea change in the dynamic of the holiday shopping season,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. “It is no longer a matter of just adding retail sales people, or a few extra staff in the stockroom. There is so much else to consider.

“Not only will businesses need retail staff, but with online shopping, it is necessary to hire extra staff for the fulfillment centers,” said Gustavson. “According to an article in eMarketer, Ecommerce’s share of total retail sales during the 2017 holiday shopping season will reach a record 11.5%. This means businesses like restaurants and trucking companies will need to ramp up both logistics in their inventory control and their number of drivers so that they can expedite delivery to shopper’s homes. Corra Group can provide a full complement of background checks to meet all the employment screening needs. From criminal records checks to motor vehicle driving records, we are a one-stop company.”

Corra Group is once again processing all Puerto Rico Background Checks. Following the devastation to the island, the El Segundo based background checking service put all Puerto Rico Background Checks on hold until further notice.

“We received word from our researchers that Puerto Rico is being to process criminal records and civil records for employment screening,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. “We thought it would have taken much longer for the island to gets its records systems up and running. I believe this is testament to the resolve and the will of the Puerto Rican people, especially the authorities who issue criminal and civil reports.”

“Here we thought it would be many months before we could facilitate employment screening services and records checks, with so much destruction to the island,” said Gustavson, “but here we are, ready to go.”

Gustavson advised that those employers conducting criminal record checks should request the statewide criminal records search, rather than the county criminal records search. “Some counties are up and running,” said Gustavson. With other counties, there are still major delays. “The Puerto Rico statewide criminal records checks is an excellent search conducted through the Puerto Rico state police. Typically, it returns in about four or five business days. That was before the storm. Now, it may take a little longer to turnaround, but it should not be hanging up for weeks at a time.”
