Employment Information Release basics

Making sure that potential employees are right for the job is important when hiring. If you're looking for a new employee and want to check their references, you can use an Employment Information Release. If the job applicant signs this document, it authorizes outside parties to release information about the applicant to you, the employer.

Use the Employment Information Release document if:

  • You're getting ready to hire a new employee, and want to check their references.
  • You work in HR and are getting the hiring documents in place.

An Employment Information Release is generally restricted to information about academic qualifications and information relating to the applicant's ability to perform the job. If the applicant signs the Employment Information Release, it also releases the outside parties providing the information from any liability related to the exchange of this information.
