Employees FAQs

How does EmployCheck affect me?

At a certain point in your career you will need your employment or salary verified, be it for a credit application, a new job or social services you are trying to qualify for. To provide a faster way of providing this information for you, your employer has partnered with EmployCheck to fulfill employment and salary verification requests on your behalf.

What information do you provide?

Two levels of verification are available:

  • Basic verification, which includes your
    • Name
    • Job title
    • Dates of employment
    • Current status (active or separated)

  • Complete verification, which includes your
    • Name
    • Job title
    • Dates of employment
    • Current status (active or separated)
    • Payroll data (including pay frequency, gross earnings for the year to date and the past 2 years)

Because your pay is confidential, a verifier will need your specific authorization to receive this information. This is done by means of a "Salary Key," which is an authorization code that you receive from EmployCheck.

Please note that we do not provide the verifications for the following types of requests. These must be handled by your employer.

  • Subpoenas or summons to appear in court.
  • Garnishment of wage inquiries or notifications to discontinue garnishment of wages.
  • Verification requests for law enforcement agencies (Criminal or Civil).
  • Verification requests for Lost Wages purposes.
  • Verification requests for temporary, contract or Medical Staff employees that are not paid by in-house payroll.
  • Immigration letters, i.e. sponsorship documentation to prove that an employee is gainfully employed.
  • Verification requests for those whose data was not originally provided to us (such as those terminated before the data periods provided or those working for a merged organization whose data has not been integrated).
  • Confirm validity of paycheck stubs and W2 forms.
  • Confirm insurance coverage.
  • Verify employment requests for the Department of Transportation, i.e. checking for DUIs and auto accidents for driver positions.

How do I get a Salary Key?

Before you get your first Salary Key, you should call 888-279-4504 to get your Employee ID and personal identification number (PIN) established. This information will also serve as your user credentials for our employee portal.

The Employee Portal will allow you to create as many salary keys as you need, as well as track the verifiers who have used those salary keys.

Do I get charged for the service?

Employees are not directly charged by EmployCheck for verifications. The verifiers are responsible for the fee associated with obtaining your employee information from our website.
