In order to evaluate you for hiring, promotion, reassignment, transfer, retention in employment, or other employment-related purposes, the Company may decide to obtain a consumer report bearing on your creditworthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living. However, no consumer report will be obtained by the Company for employment purposes without your prior written authorization. I hereby acknowledge that the Company has disclosed, in writing, that it may obtain a consumer report bearing on my credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living for employment purposes. I hereby authorize the Company and its representatives and agents to obtain a consumer report bearing on my credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics or mode of living.
I hereby acknowledge and consent to the Company to obtain and review reports of driver history from states in which a license has been held in accordance with, but not limited to, 48 CFR Part 391. This consent shall be considered continuing, permitting for additional driver history inquiries as deemed necessary by the Company for the entire length of my employment with the Company.
Previous Employer Inquiries and Investigations
As required by 391.23, we will make investigative inquiries to previous DOT-regulated employers related to your employment history, drug and alcohol testing results, and accident history. We will use this information in our hiring decision. Pursuant to 391.23, you have the following rights with regard to responses received in these areas from previous DOT-regulated employers:
- The right to review information provided by previous DOT-regulated employers:
- The right to have errors in the information corrected by the previous employer; and for that previous employer to re-send the corrected information to the prospective employer;
- The right to have a rebuttal statement attached to the alleged erroneous information, if you and the previous employer cannot agree on the accuracy of the information.
If you wish to review previous DOT-regulated employer information received in response to required inquiries, you must submit a written request to the prospective employer no later than 30 days after being employed or being notified of denial of employment. After making such written request, any information received will be provided to you within five days, unless no such information has been provided in response to required inquiries. For information on procedures to rebut information provided by previous DOT-regulated employers, see Title 49 of the Coded Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 391.23(j).
I hereby acknowledge and certify that I have read and understood these Authorizations and Notifications in this section of this Application for Employment.
