Employment Verification
An employment verification validates the details of disclosed employment history of an individual for a specified year period (3, 5, or 7). Current employers are contacted only if given permission to do so. The components verified could include position held and dates of employment and will depend on availability of data within an entity's records. Income verification is also obtained for non-employment purposes only.
Certn makes 3-5 sufficient attempts to obtain source data for verification and reports back accordingly. A sufficient attempt can be defined as an attempt which could reasonably lead to a result. Additional fees can apply when an employer utilizes an outsources entity to provide data.
