I'm curious to know if trucking companies are required by FMCSA to verify all 10 years of our employment histories, or just the last 3 years. Does anyone know?
If you happen to know where the regulation is in the handbook, I'd be grateful if you'd point it out to me.
I've wondered about it before, but in the process of filling out an online application I ran across this:
The U.S. Department of Transportation requires that driver applicants provide all employment for the past THREE years. Prior to hiring, all driver applicants must also provide commercial driver employment for the SEVEN years immediately preceding this three year period.
Driver applicants must account for any gaps in employment during this period.
If unemployed during any of that period, enter "Unemployed" and list dates (you should be prepared to provide an unemployment compensation stub, if required). For any period of self-employment, we may require additional documention. If previous employers are out of business, we will require copies of W-2 Tax Forms, Pay Stubs or other documentation.
All employment history from past 3 years is required. PLEASE ACCOUNT FOR ALL TIME PERIODS IN THE PAST 3 YEARS. LEAVE NO GAPS.
Employment history - verify all 10 years?
