Our employment verifications provide a glimpse into the history, reliability and accuracy of an applicant’s previous work experience. Confirming dates, title, salary and other job facts can make your hiring decisions easier.

The information candidates provide is typically confirmed directly with HR, personnel or payroll staff. And some employers have the information recorded and stored with third-party services.

Job history verification options include:

  • Dates & title only
  • Dates, title & reason for leaving
  • Dates, title & rehire ability
  • Dates, title & salary
  • Full verification: dates, title, salary, reason for leaving, availability for rehire & performance survey (when available)
  • Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration/Department of Transportation (FMCSA/DOT)
  • Employment verifications can help you:

    • Confirm that the candidate has the necessary prerequisite experience
    • Determine whether title, salary, and rehire status are suited for the open position
    • Analyze inconsistencies for dates of employment to find commonly hidden gaps

    Verification turnaround time:

    2 – 3 business days

    Note: Fees may apply to some employment verifications in order to access the data from third-party sources.

    Q: How does your verification process work?

    A: Our highly trained verification specialists call the previous or current employer to obtain employment information. We report each attempt to contact the employer in your online account. This makes it easy for you to monitor the verification status.

    Q: Why is it difficult to obtain subjective information from previous employers?

    A: Due to various laws and employer policies, organizations will limit disclosure of previous employment information to objective facts only, consisting of dates of employment and titles. The availability of salary, ability to rehire, reason for leaving and some subjective questions can be limited.

    Q: What fees are associated with employment verifications?

    A: Some Human Resource departments archive previous employee data with secure third-party organizations. These organizations may charge fees to access data.
