Employment request forms are used either to verify an individual’s current employment or used by companies for applicants to find out about their previous employment history. In this case, a proper release of information can be facilitated only if the individual concerned gives permission for his previous employment service record to be released.
Our Sample Forms for employment request have examples that are being used by agencies and organizations requesting employment information that can help users for reference purposes. These are all free for downloading in both Word Doc and PDF files.

Most companies check on a potential employee’s background before he or she can be hired. Currently, there are no laws that prohibit employers from divulging on their employee’s work history. Most of the time, a current employer will check on an employee’s history such as previous job title and job description, the dates of employment, and, of course, the previous salary. To verify all information being entered into by an employee’s application is correct, employers often share such information to a previous employer to help with the veracity of the application information being given by the applicant.
Depending on the company however, some companies do not provide detailed information about past employees except to help verify that the employee used to work for that company. Since former employers will not generally share about an individual’s job performance, other companies often use back-channel requests from former colleagues to gain information off the record. For this reason, it’s very important for applicants to be honest when supplying information on their job applications.
For new employers who ask for reference regarding their current employee’s work history from a former employer, the following general specifics included in an employment request are
- previous job position,
- which department the employee belonged,
- status whether employee worked full time or part time,
- date of employment, and
- date of termination of employment.

While most employers verify work history on employees by relegating such tasks to their own human resources department staff, other big, well-known companies who are very strict with their employment procedures often hire third-party agencies who specialize in reference checking. These agencies make it their specialty to conduct extensive background checking, which may include credit history, drug or alcohol abuse problems, and criminal history.
For this reason, it’s very important for users of our samples to know that they need to fill out their applications as accurately as possible to spare them the embarrassment of not being able to get hired due to lying about their employment history. These samples are offered to make users aware how employment request forms are being filled out and used by employers to check on employment backgrounds in both general and detailed forms.
