Firm Provides Background Checks

NEW YORK -- Yours In Travel, an industry recruitment and employment agency here, created a program enabling travel agencies to run a series of checks on potential new employees.

The Value Added Program is free to Yours In Travel clients and includes credit and criminal checks as well as intelligence, drug and integrity testing on potential new hires, according to P. Jason King, president of Yours In Travel.

Although the testing provides no guarantee, it can help employers make educated decisions about who they are hiring to work in their offices, according to King.

"Every day , we hear stories about an employee embezzling money, stealing tickets or creating some form of scam in travel agencies," he said. "Hopefully, this program can help put an end to that."

Yours in Travel was founded in 1972 by King and has 10 U.S. locations and a branch office in London.
