REGARDING BACKGROUND REPORTS
Federal transportation regulations (Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations) require carriers to request and former employers to provide historical employment information for driver applicants. In connection with your driver application with Melton Truck Lines Inc., said prospective employer may also obtain one or more reports regarding your credit, driving and/or criminal background history from a consumer reporting agency and/or other resources. If a prospective employer uses any information it obtains in a background report to not hire you or to make any adverse employment decisions regarding you, you will be entitled to a copy of that report and a summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. A prospective employer cannot obtain background reports from consumer reporting agencies or other sources regarding you unless you consent in writing. Your signature below will acknowledge your consent and release of this information for purposes of evaluating your application for employment. Please read the below consent, waiver and release regarding your background reports carefully.
