Employment Verification

Info Cubic's Employment Verficiation verifies previous employment supplied by the applicant, including dates of employment and position(s) held.

Employment verification is a necessary step to take during the background check process. Info Cubic’s employment verification professionals will verify previous employment supplied by your applicant, including dates of employment and position(s) held. Per the employer’s policy, reason for leaving, rehire status, starting and ending pay rates, performance, reason for departure, rehire status, and any other general comments may be available. Info Cubic can develop an employment verification process that is appropriate for your organization and industry and customize packages with the breadth of scope appropriate for the positions for which you are hiring, including number of employers or years. Pricing for employment verifications is per employer verified.

Did you know

Studies have shown that around 36% of job applicants have lied or exaggerated something on their resumes. Candidates can even buy their way into a fake organization to be able to put that experience on a resume and have it verified by individuals pretending to work for the fake company. These staggering realities are just a couple of the reasons why it is so important to have someone with competence and expertise completing your employment verifications. Contact Info Cubic today to learn how we can put our experience to work for you.

Results Guidelines

Employment verification results include only that information which is able to be released by the former employer according to its company policy. This may limit the information received to only dates of employment and position, but may extend into information related to salary, variable compensation or bonuses, and sometimes performance related information. Info Cubic will provide all information received from the source to our clients. Some states now limit the collection and use of salary information prior to an offer of employment being made. We recommend consultation with a qualified legal counsel for all employment law matters.

Potential Outcome (Result)

Clear: A call was placed to the source, and the information provided by the candidate was verified.

Q: I was hired via contract or temp agency. Who should I list as my employer?
A: Info Cubic will need to verify your employment through the company for which you genuinely worked. Your employment records will be held by whichever company was actually issuing your paychecks.


Q: Why might results return as "Review"?
A: Info Cubic will compare what was entered into our system and what the source supplies us directly. If a position, dates of employment, and/or other information varies from what was originally provided, it will be marked as review.


Q: The company I worked for is no longer in business. Can you still verify employment?
A: If the company was purchased, it is likely that the new owners will hold employment records for the former company. If the company is no longer in existence in any form, we may not be able to verify, but Info Cubic will exhaust all options before closing the request.


Q: Can you use my paystub or W2 information to verify?
A: Info Cubic cannot accept documentation to verify employment, as such documentation is difficult to validate.


Q: What is TWN, and why is there a fee?
A: TWN is short for The Work Number. This is a 3rd party verification service that employers choose to work with to store and verify employment record information. Many employers have turned to this system for record holding as opposed to requiring employment verifications to go through their Human Resources office. There is a pass-through fee required for this service which will be passed through on the invoice from Info Cubic. If an
employer contracts with The Work Number, this will be the only available method for verification.
