Employment History Verification
Applicants may falsify or exaggerate employment history to meet the requirements for a position, or in an attempt to inflate experience in hopes of greater compensation. Some common types of inaccurate information discovered through an employment verification include:
- Dates of employment extended to cover job changes
- Position, title or responsibilities exaggerated
- Employer listed is fictitious
Scope of Verification
An employment verification specialist will contact the employer to verify information reported by the employee on a job application or resume. The report will contain dates of employment, last position held and eligibility for rehire.
