New Hampshire’s NH SB134, was signed into law late this summer. Among other change, NH SB134 alleviates certain administrative aspects of Motor Vehicle Record checks (MVRs) for employees in New Hampshire.
How This Changes Fleet Motor Vehicle Record Checks
The legislative changes in NH SB134 provide an improvement in the processing of Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) releases. Specifically, drivers no longer need to provide a notarized copy of the State specific authorization form.
New Hampshire now allows employers to distribute a standard FCRA release form to employees. Employers still must comply with FCRA rules which require employers to retain the release forms for a period of three years.
NH SB134 goes into effect immediately. Be sure to update your checklists for onboarding employees in New Hampshire. You can view the details of the changes to NH laws in the legislation here.
