Along with our competitors, we offer such solutions, and expect demand for these services to grow as the trend for temporary employees to fill critical voids grows.
Holtsville, NY (Vocus) February 10, 2010
CARCO Group, Inc. (CARCO), a worldwide leader in background screening and investigations, announced today the publication of a white paper that explores the importance of screening temporary workers. Published in response to a growing trend by companies to employ temporary workers in key roles and for lengthier periods of time, the white paper reviews the benefits of temporary employee screening, while also noting the risks associated with not screening these workers.
Included in this analysis are the facts that the U.S. Department of Labor projects employment of temporary employees to grow almost 20% through 2018, temporary workers are increasingly being placed in positions of authority with the same access to company property and assets as full-time screened employees, and negligent hiring lawsuits are on the rise—with employers being held liable for the actions of temporary employees.
“As the workforce changes and temporary workers stake a claim as permanent fixtures, it is critical to provide fast and accurate background screening that can be done cost-effectively,” James Owens, CEO and President of CARCO Group, Inc. notes in the paper. “Along with our competitors, we offer such solutions, and expect demand for these services to grow as the trend for temporary employees to fill critical voids grows.”
