Your Questions, Answered
A letter of employment, or proof of employment, summarizes information from your current job offer A letter of employment includes information about your pay and deductions from your pay, your job duties, and conditions of employment such as the nature of your contract or hours of work. A letter of employment is most often requested by lenders such as banks and landlords to validate information about your current job and inform their decision making.
The employment verification process includes verifying the following details: dates of employment and job title. Members of Certn’s verification team do this via phone or email.
Employment verification is a standard part of the pre-employment background screening process. This process helps employers determine whether the candidate is suitable for the role.
In Canada, the United States, and Australia, employers can confirm a candidate’s dates of employment and the job titles or positions held. In the United Kingdom, employers can confirm the dates of employment and the job titles or positions held, plus details of any disqualifications in a Directorship Check.
On top of conducting a background check to verify your past employment, HR may call or email your previous employers to verify the dates of employment and job titles listed in your application. The HR team may also outsource this task to a third-party vendor like Certn.
The turnaround time for employment verifications depends on the efficiency and responsiveness of the sources, but we generally tell clients that they can expect a response within 5 to 10 business days.
