Transportation Network Companies (TNCs)

Laws are changing in the transportation sector. A California law that took effect in January 2017 requires Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft to conduct stricter background checks on their drivers. In November 2017, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) strengthened the background checks required for TNC drivers by requiring them to use background screening firms accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) when conducting background checks on their drivers. States such as Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey also passed laws regarding background checks for TNC drivers. A law in Rhode Island that took effect in October 2016 requires TNCs who use third party Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) for the background screening of potential drivers to only use CRAs like ESR who are accredited by the NAPBS.
