It turns out that a AUD42.00 police check does not buy a lot of comfort or trust these days.
And the sharing economy companies and governments around the world know it.
For example, 1 in 9 applicants were rejected. Ouch.
Under a new state background check process in Massachusetts, 8,206 people who applied to drive for ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft between January and April were denied licenses, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities announced Wednesday.
Most of the rejections were due to suspended licenses or people not having enough years of driving experience to qualify for the companies, The Boston Globe reports. There were hundreds of other applications tossed out due to serious crimes, like violent offenses or reckless driving, and 51 sex offenders were denied licenses. A total of 70,789 applications were submitted.
In Australia, we suggest a high end suitability background vetting service (3 day turn around) will keep everyone safe and provide the sharing economy a credible platform to flourish and also remove FUD - Fear Uncertainty Doubt.
Q, Does your sharing economy company have a Cleard.life check policy?
Cleard.life is the standard … because it uses the Attorney General's standards for honesty, trustworthiness, tolerance, maturity, loyalty and resilience.
