Uber expanding driver background checks
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- On-demand car service Uber says it will perform expanded background checks on its drivers.
On its blog, Uber says it will now employ an independent screening service that uses a multi-state criminal database. Until now, Uber relied on background checks already performed by state and local agencies.
The move comes after a wrongful death lawsuit was filed against Uber because of a San Francisco accident that killed a six-year-old girl.
