Department of Transportation (DOT) / Transportation Employment Verification
By law, safety sensitive positions in select industries are regulated, resulting in unique past employment verification requirements. In these industries, compliance is of the utmost importance, making verification of the applicant’s previous employment absolutely essential.
Our DOT/Transportation Employment Verification services verify information required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) part 391 for driving positions and Department of Transportation (DOT) 49 CFR part 40 for safety-sensitive positions. These background check services require special hand-signed authorization/release forms from each former employer. The forms confirm prior driving history and previous drug and alcohol testing results. Per regulation, previous employers have 30 days to respond to these verification requests.
