Protect your business from fraud with an employment history check


There is a range of falsifications that candidates make at all levels of job applications, from junior positions through to executive roles. Work experience and employment history are two of the most common falsifications, yet the easiest to confirm as part of a strong screening process.

Common lies on resumes include job titles, responsibilities and remunerations. Candidates will also extend their time in a position or hide a job where they were dismissed from. If you hire new workforce members without the right knowledge and experience, you expose yourself to reputational damage and an expensive hiring mistake.

Employment history checks provide exact, accurate and unbiased information to help you make the right employment decision.

How are employment history checks performed?

The Process

Once the check is requested, a WorkPro risk specialist contacts the nominated HR or payroll department of the candidate to verify the details of their employment, including:

  • Dates of employment
  • Position/s held
  • Details of promotions
  • Last salary
  • Any bonuses
  • Name of previous Line Managers
  • Reason for leaving
  • Eligibility for re-hire

Five valid attempts are made over three days, and as a last resort, the direct Manager will be contacted.

The employment check can verify details up to 7 years old on a candidate’s resume. The verification process is managed via telephone, fax, email or directly with the employer, and each method will depend on the country where the check is being conducted.

You will receive a full, comprehensive and detailed report that will be available in your WorkPro dashboard. You will receive a notification when it arrives. The report will include all of the details obtained as listed above.

Do you require consent from the candidate to complete this check?
