If you hire temporary workers for the holiday season (full- or part-time), be sure to complete background checks as if they were applying for permanent positions. After all, even someone working three hours a day can cause irreparable damage to your business through theft, drug sales, workplace violence, harassment, etc. Certainly, you deserve to know if even a part-time worker with limited hours poses a threat to your business.
AND if any of these temporary workers will be driving a vehicle (company or personal) for any business purposes, check the driving record to make sure it complies with your standards and those of your insurance carrier.
