Evy Udell was a resident of Boca Raton Florida, who was tragically and sadistically killed by a delivery worker last year.
Rep. Michael Caruso (R-Delay Beach) is sponsoring a law requiring all company delivery worker to pass local and criminal background checks, and require that their employers provide documentation proving their due diligence in the process,
The bill has yet to pass, but there are a few points of contention already. The bill only applies to persons “entering a home” like someone delivering a washer/dryer. The bill would prevent people from in-home delivery only if the following applies:
they have been arrested, convicted or are awaiting trial on a wide-range of charges, including sexual misconduct, assault, domestic violence, manslaughter a nd murder.
This, of course, begs the question “or are awaiting trial” and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. We are not sure if the bill only covers employees, or if it also applies to the many contractors, especially the “uberesque” Adhoc delivery persons that are becoming so popular with the likes of Amazon in the online/home delivery business.
So what do you think? Overreach? Not Enough? The bill is now in the house, now is the time to speak to your representatives.
