Give Equifax your viable information
Equifax needs your name, company name, supervisor’s name, industry, supervisor’s phone number, company address, your company’s “permissible purpose” for the information, and a written explanation of how your company uses the work history verification when you sign up for the verification service. Some of the things that are allowed are a credit check, a government benefit, a question about child support, a check with law enforcement, the employee’s written permission, and an update to the file from an employer. Then you need a user name and a password for the account.
Look through the records
Use your name, address, and Social Security number to find records. Information like employer name, job title, employment status, length of time with employer, date of last update, file numbers, and employer disclaimers are all in the Equifax database. More than 3,800 employers have given the company more than 220 million job records.
