Comprehensive Employment Verifications

Employment Verification Services

Verify that your applicant hasn’t overinflated their credentials with ScoutLogic’s Employment Verification Service. Utilizing multiple contact channels including email, chat and text ScoutLogic is able to accelerate verifications, completing them in as little as one day in many cases. Our proprietary online verification tool allows employers to easily complete verifications, eliminating phone tag and the faxing or emailing of personal information.

If ScoutLogic is unable to reach an employer due to bankruptcy or unable to verify employment in the case of contact, we will reach out to the applicant at no cost to you to gather proof of employment in the form of a paystub, W2 or other acceptable document.

ScoutLogic verifies employment for the last seven years up to the three most recent employers, giving you the most relevant view of your applicant’s work history while not sacrificing time or money on unneeded verifications. Work history verification information includes dates of employment, title(s) held, and salary (when available).



How do you perform employment verifications?

Employment verifications are either very easy to complete because an applicant worked at a big company that subscribes to an automated verification system or they are really hard because the candidate worked at a small company that has limited resources to assist with verifying employment or may even be out of business. ScoutLogic has improved challenging verifications in four ways.

  1. Using ScoutLogic Analytics, we identify the challenging verifications at the start of the screen and begin the process immediately.
  2. We only use U.S. based verifiers who have a higher success rate of securing the verification.
  3. Our online verification tool allows employers to easily complete verifications.
  4. We use an outbound calling and emailing solution that increases verifier productivity 300% via automated dialing and emailing for the verifier, leaving personalized voicemails from the verifier, local phone numbers on the employer’s caller ID, and analytics software that demonstrates trends in verifying we can use to adjust workload, call times, and much more.

How long do employment verifications take?

ScoutLogic’s Employment background checks take between 4 and 72 hours in most cases. That said, all employment verifications have different turnaround times based on the employer size, availability of records and time elapsed since employment. Never believe it when someone gives you a “standard” turnaround time or even worse they “guarantee” an unrealistic turnaround time like one day for all searches. The reality is that some searches are just more difficult to complete. This is why we created ScoutLogic Analytics. ScoutLogic Analytics breaks down all of the applicant attributes including employer size, verification method, date of employment and title to give you an estimated turnaround time for your specific case, not just a guesstimate based on the average of thousands of different types of verifications.
