The firm that runs the swan boat rides in Boston has recently revealed that they do not put their employees through background checks, even though they commonly work around children, the elderly and disabled residents. As part of the city’s department of Parks and Recreation, Boston Finance Commission Executive Director Matthew Cahill has demanded an audit of the department immediately and to find out why background checks are not being done.
The swan boat rides typically run from April to September and generally is run by nearby college students, however, most of them have never been put through a background check at all. There is no telling what type of backgrounds these students have, yet they are . This could be an extremely dangerous situation.
The only way to be on top of this is to run background checks on all employees. Hiring a third party back ground company like backgroundchecks.com may be the best way to do this. They have various products, like their US OneSEARCH, which not only will provide a look at criminal records in all fifty states, but also will check sex offender databases throughout the country. All of this can help keep children, the elderly and the disabled, safe.
