Verifies a person’s past and/or present work experience by contacting employers/supervisors directly or through automated verification systems. Provides information which can include: dates of employment, position, salary, reason for leaving, eligibility for rehire, disciplinary action taken, dependability, and general work duties. Verifying employment can let employers know if applicant is being honest about length of employment. This verification can be delayed if employers do not promptly return calls or if verifications are only done by mail. In some cases only limited information can be verified based on employer’s policies.
