Why check the employment of applicants?

There is a range of falsifications that candidates make at all levels of job applications, from junior positions through to executive roles. Work experience, employment history and background are one of the most critical elements of a resume for most positions – yet it’s also the easiest place to lie on or pad out to appear more suitable for a role.

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 damaged relationships, missed deadlines and a badly affected reputation.

Employment history checks provide exact, accurate and unbiased information to employers, so they can make the right decision about hiring new workforce members.

The cost of not performing employment history checks is just not worth it.

WorkPro offers a complete range of background checks for employers. With WorkPro, you can order, track and manage it all for your workforce from one powerful dashboard. Start screening smart and hire with confidence again.

How are employment history checks performed?

When a check is requested, a risk specialist contacts nominated HR or payroll department of the worker to verify the details of their employment.

This includes:

    • Dates of employment
    • Positions held
    • Details of promotions
    • Last salary
    • Any bonuses
    • Name of previous line managers
    • Reason for leaving
    • Eligibility for re-hire


There will be 5 valid attempts over 3 days to HR or payroll departments to verify the employment history. As a last resort, the direct manager will be contacted to verify the details.

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.
