With Proforma’s new FleetAlert and WorkSafe services, clients now have an easy and affordable way to conduct routine background checks and protect themselves.
Purcellville, VA (PRWEB) June 22, 2011
Proforma Screening Solutions, a leading provider of employment screening services, has recently unveiled two new innovative HR services: Fleet Alert and Work Safe. Proforma’s services offer low-cost, comprehensive, and ongoing employee background checks to help companies reduce negligent retention claims.
First recognized by the Florida Supreme Court in 1954, the tort of negligent retention considers it the employer’s responsibility to become aware of problems with employees that may indicate they are unfit for the job at hand; and furthermore to take action, such as investigating, discharging, or reassigning the employee in order to reduce the employee’s risk of harm to others.
For companies that need to be continuously proactive, Proforma Screening Solutions’ newest offerings include:
FleetAlert, designed for the transportation industry, which combines periodic motor vehicle reports with monthly criminal monitoring, starting at $10 per month per employee.
WorkSafe provides proactive criminal record monitoring of employees against a baseline established when they are hired. WorkSafe allows an employer to simply determine which criminal activities they want to monitor, and they’ll receive reports as frequently as every two weeks or on a customized timeline.
According to President of Proforma Screening Solutions, David D. Lowers, “In an employment setting, negligent hiring and retention are common sources of trouble for employers. With Proforma’s new FleetAlert and WorkSafe services, clients now have an easy and affordable way to conduct routine background checks and protect themselves. With Proforma’s latest offerings a company can run periodic background checks on existing workers to ensure they remain within the same acceptable background requirements of the role they were originally hired for.”
Experts frequently point to employment background checks as an affordable, common-sense way to bolster an employer’s protection against negligent hiring, among other benefits. Yet, while many companies do a criminal background check before hiring an employee, without consistent monitoring of the employee’s background a company is susceptible to potentially equally damaging effects of negligent retention.
With Proforma Screening Solutions’ newest offerings companies can screen employees upfront for an average cost of $50 or less, and then ongoing for approximately $10 per month per employee.
