Specializes in L&D/Antepartum, Neuro. Has 7 years experience.

Anyone familiar with them? I'm assuming it's similar to Group One since they are doing a background check but the information they require seems a little excessive. I filled out a form yesterday so they could do a background check on me basically asking my previous employments for the last 7yrs, name, maiden name, schooling, SS#, etc...

Well today I get an email and an automated phone call telling me they need further assistance verifying my previous employer and are requiring the following:

  • Our client is asking that you supply documentation that verifies both the start and end dates of your employment. Acceptable forms of documentation may include W-2 forms or pay stubs or 1099 forms.
  • Another contact name and number of an authorized party that is currently employed with the company that can verify your employment.
  • A signed disclosure and consent form. If you provided us with an email address, you should find a copy of a consent form in your email inbox. If you did not provide us with an email address, please visit http://www.hireright.com/applicantrelease/ to print a copy.

I can understand the need for a signed consent form (i had electronically signed one in the form I filled out yesterday) but with that and the main hospital # why are they having such a hard time verifying my employment. They have my social security #, my maiden and married name and my permission to poke around my business. Why do the need a W2 or pay stubs? :confused:
