Notification and Agreement


The information you provided on this application may be used, and the applicant's prior employers may be contacted, for the purpose of investigating the applicant's safety performance history information. Pursuant to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations 49 CFR Sec. 391.23 (i)(1), you have the following rights with regard to the safety performance history information provided by your previous employers.


You have the right to review the records provided by your previous employers. You must make your request to review in writing and submit it to your prospective employer no later than thirty (30) days after employment begins or notification of employment is made. You will be provided with the records within five (5) business days of receipt of your written request. If the prospective employer has not rec~ived the records at the time of your request, then the five (5) day period to provide access will begin on the day the records are received from the previous employer. If you fail to arrange to pick up or receive the requested records within thirty (30) days of when they are first made available to you, then your right to review is considered waived.


If you believethere is an error in the records, you have the right to have your previous employer correct the error. Send your request for correction to the previous employer that provided the records in question. The previous employer must either correct and forward the record to the prospective employer or notify you within fifteen (15) days of receiving your request that they do not agree the record is in error. If the previous employer corrects and forwards the record as re51uested, that employer must also retain the corrected information as part of your safety performances history record and provide it to subsequent prospective employers when requests for this information are received.


If the previous employer does not agree that information in the records provided is in error, you may rebut the disputed information in writing and send it to the previous employer with instructions to include the rebuttal in your safety performance history file. Within five (5) business days of receiving your rebuttal, the previous employer must; forward a copy of the rebuttal to the prospective employer; append the rebuttal to your safety performance information and include it as part of the response for any subsequent investigating prospective employers for the duration of the three (3) year data retention requirement period. You may submit a rebuttal initially without a request for correction, or subsequent to a request for correction.


You may report failures of a previous employer to correct information or include your rebuttal as part of the safety performance, to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration by following procedures specified at 49 CFR Section 385.12.
