Regarding the FMCSA Clearinghouse:Will employers be required to query the database for existing drivers? When will this be required and how often? Will this be a manual per driver query or ability to upload all drivers for query?
Employers will be required to query the Clearinghouse at a minimum on an annual basis for current employees beginning on Jan 6, 2020. A pre-employment query must be conducted for all prospective employees. Employers will be able to conduct queries individually or be able to conduct batch queries, which will require a file upload to the Clearinghouse.
