Why check a candidate’s employment history?

One’s past work experience may be a key factor in the selections process. Industry statistics show that approximately one-third of all resumes are falsified with many candidates embellishing aspects of their employment history in a bid to gain a position. Common embellishments are titles, responsibilities and remuneration. Additionally candidates may extend their time in positions to hide a job they may have been dismissed from or a period of unemployment.
Employment History Checks provide exact, accurate and unbiased information to employers.

What will be confirmed?

The information provided by the Candidate will be verified and additional information will be sought where not provided by the candidate, including:

  • Responsibilities

How to you go about doing the check?

There will be 5 valid attempts (including phone, email or fax requests) over 3 days to Human Resources or Payroll to verify the employment History. Employment history verifications are provided via phone, email or fax. As a last resort the Direct Manager will be contacted to verify the employment details.
