    Contractor Screening-Considerations for Every Employer 10/03/2017 Would you hire a murderer or violent offender to work for your short line? Probably not! While most short lines do an excellent job of screening potential employees, frequently contractors and subcontractors are overlooked in the hiring process. These contractors and subcontractors may have violent offenders working with your employees or on your property without your knowledge. Failure to properly screen these people represents a huge potential liability for your company. Spend an hour with eVerifile discussing risks and liabilities, Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), co-employment and drug testing. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in Q&A at the end of the webinar. Add to Calendar
