Policy Details

It is the policy of Emory to protect the privacy of each employee. Organizations who wish to verify the employment of a former Emory University employee are required to use an automated external employment verification service designated by Emory. Emory uses The Work Number® to provide automated employment and income verifications on our former employees. Current employees have the option of either using The Work Number® or of having the third party requiring the verification fax a request (with your signature authorizing release of income data) to Human Resources Data Services at (404) 727-4008.

Employment and income verifications may be required when applying for a mortgage or loan, for reference checking, leasing an apartment, establishing credit or any other instance where proof of employment or income is needed. The individual employee is responsible for authorizing the release of this information to the verifying organization.
