The Belt Railway Company of Chicago (BRC) requires that any employee who drives a company vehicle must have in his/her possession at all times a current and valid driver’s license. Compliance with this policy is required of all employees.  Violation of this policy may subject the employee to disciplinary action and possible criminal charges.
BRC departmental supervision will ensure compliance with this policy. BRC Police will run computer checks on the driver’s licenses of employees who drive Company vehicles to ensure that they are not suspended or revoked.
