Why Check Licences?

Whether you’re screening applicants or hiring someone to do work around the house, it pays to ensure the person you’re hiring has the necessary skills, qualifications and the rights to be performing such work. An advertisement in a local paper really doesn’t tell you whether a person has a trade licence in good standing, or any standing in the community at all.

With over 20% of all resumes containing at least one lie or fabrication, it really does make you wonder how many in general society and business are also not being completely honest. If you consider that a resume is often gone over with a fine toothed comb which should be a great deterrent (but isn’t), how many are concerned about having a current trade or professional licence when marketing their services?

If you consider it further, why did the profession require a licence in the first place? And why are licences cancelled? Chances are the public have been previously effected by the bad eggs within the industry.
