If you run a business and you're about to hire a new employee, and want to check their work history, you can use an Information Release. This document allows every person and organization listed on an application to provide information; it is a statement signed by the applicant which authorizes the release of the relevant information.
Checking references is critical for employers, and an Information Release can help make the process more efficient, as it means that those organizations and individuals who have the necessary information will have the applicant's permission. An Information Release is typically restricted to information related to the applicant's academic qualifications and their ability to perform the work of the position, and it releases those providing the information from any liability for the exchange of the information.
