Negligent employment claims, theft, drug abuse in the workplace, reputational harm, and financial liability resulting from employee acts; the number one reason employers engage in background screening and drug testing is to mitigate organizational risk associated with hiring and employing staff. Independent contractors and vendors utilized by an organization to support additional labor needs can pose the same risks as W-2 employees. According to 2020 LinkedIn article, “There are approximately 60 million Independent workers in the United States, representing $1.5 trillion in U.S. GDP and growing. Projections estimate that 50% of our U.S. workforce will be independent workers by 2025- 2030.” Many workforce experts narrow the window to 2027. With a steady increase in contract labor expected for the foreseeable future, companies need compliant independent contractor and vendor screening programs to align their risk mitigation initiatives across all worker populations. 

Adhering to state and federal guidelines governing consumer report processes like the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) can pose unique challenges for organizations screening 1099 independent contractors and vendors, as Permissible Purpose and other statute requirements may necessitate specific actions based upon the independent contractor-contracting organization relationship. AccuSourceHR™ Workforce Solutions knowledgeable team of seasoned industry professionals understand the complexities of contractor screening programs and assist clients in establishing and maintaining compliant programs.
