Corra Group will be offering special discount pricing for Motor Vehicle Driving Records for any professional commercial driver who is attending the Great American Trucking Show, in Dallas Texas. The GAT will run from August 24th-26th and will be held in Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Over fifty thousand people are expected to attend.

“Corra Group services hundreds of trucking and transportation companies,” said Corra Group, Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “Truckers come to us for their employment screening needs, including the annual MVR that is run on every commercial driver, to stay compliant with the Department of Transportation. “We are a full-service company.”

“This year, we are offering all attendees and trucking companies in possession of a commercial driver’s license, special discounted rates for MVR’S,” said Basichis. “We are offering driving records for companies with five or more drivers at $5.00 per MVR, plus the state Department of Motor Vehicle Fees.”

Basichis offered that to get this special GAT Discounted rate, the trucker must show proof that he or she attended the Show. He suggested the trucking company or its drivers be able to email proof of registration, to the El Segundo, CA based employment screening service.

“This is not an offer that will last forever,” said Basichis. “Our discounted $5.00 offer runs from the show until September 30th. And then its’s back to regular pricing. I should note that we base our pricing on volume, so the more drivers you have in your company, the cheaper the price of the MVR.”

Basichis noted that in addition to providing Motor Vehicle Driving Records, Corra Group offers a package of trucking background checks, including criminal records checks, and DOT compliant Employment Verification, as well as PSP reports, and the CDLIS.

Corra Group is prepping for a new round of hiring in the Healthcare Industry, now that the Republican Party has failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare.” The El Segundo, California headquartered background screening service believe that despite all the uncertainty on the part of the healthcare insurers, as expressed in a recent Wall Street Journal Article, the survival of the ACA will lead to renewed hiring on national and regional levels.

“Hiring within the Healthcare Industry has mainly been on hold for this past year,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Nick Gustavson. “With all the indecision, our healthcare clients were reluctant to move forward with new employment.

“But now there has been resolution, concerning the Affordable Care Act,” said Gustavson. “We are preparing for a new surge of hiring and with it an increase in employment screening for the different channels in the medical sector.”

Gustavson pointed out that Corra Group offer a full range of background checks for its clients in need of conducting background checks in the healthcare industry. He noted that Corra Group offers a comprehensive healthcare employment screening package that can be ordered in its entirety or with different searches ordered a la carte.

“We have much experience with background checks in the healthcare industry,” said Gustavson. We can conduct everything from criminal checks, to the FACIS Level 3 Healthcare sanctions, to drug testing, and international education verification and criminal searches.

Please take note.


San Francisco’s Board of Supervisor’s passed a pay equity ordinance on July 11, 2017 which is now awaiting the Mayor’s signature. The “Parity in Pay” ordinance will become operative July 1, 2018. The ordinance will ban private employers from inquiring about and considering a job applicant’s prior salary history. It will also apply to certain contractors working with the city of San Francisco.  The ordinance, which adds Article 33 to the Police Code and Chapter 12K to the Administrative Code, can be found by clicking here.

  • The ordinance will apply to applicants applying for private employment to be performed in the geographic boundaries of San Francisco (the city and county). Under certain circumstances, the ordinance also applies to applicants for private employment where the work is performed under a contract with the city of San Francisco or when the work is performed on city property used under a lease, permit or license.
  • The prohibition is such that an employer cannot consider or rely on an applicant’s salary history as a factor in determining whether to offer employment to an applicant, or what their salary will be. Furthermore, employers cannot release the salary history of current or former employees to an applicant’s prospective employer without written authorization from the current or former employee, unless the release of salary history is required by law, is part of a publicly available record, or is subject to a collective bargaining agreement.
  • If an applicant voluntarily discloses salary history or provides written authorization to the release of salary history, then such can be considered or verified by an employer.

California’s Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) will publish and make available in multiple languages notices describing to job applicants and employees their rights under the law. Employers will be required to post such notices in a conspicuous place at their workplace.

San Francisco joins the following states and cities with pay equity ordinances on the books — DelawareMassachusettsOregonNew York City, NY and Philadelphia, PA.
