To help answer your questions about employment verification and salary verifications, we have compiled our Employment & Salary Verification FAQ.
1. What types of services does QuickConfirm offer?
QuickConfirm offers three distinct types of services for three distinct types of visitors, and employment verifications work a bit differently for each:
VERIFIERS who want to verify someone's employment and salary information. A verifier refers to any organization such as a bank, lending institution, social service agency, or a prospective employer, seeking to verify the employment or income of someone who is working or has worked for a company that is a registered member of our network.
EMPLOYEES You are a present or past employee of a QuickConfirm client. Using QuickConfirm enables you to view your personal information or authorize a salary verification for a third-party verifier.
EMPLOYERS looking to automate and reduce the time devoted to processing and answering employment and salary requests.
2. How much does QuickConfirm cost?
There is no charge for employers to join our network. Likewise, there is no charge for employees who work for companies of these employers to release their information. Verifiers are charged for verifications based on the type of account they establish.
3. What information must a verifier have in order to verify employment and salary for an employee?
In order to access employment information, the verifier must enter the employee's Company Code and Social Security Number. Because our system is fully online, the employment verification request is completed without requiring the employee to log into QuickConfirm as long as they have provided the third party with the information indicated above. Without this information, no third party can access employee information.
For security purposes, employees need to log into QuickConfirm to create a unique salary authorization code to enable a third party to obtain salary information. Employees can log into the system to see the status of their employment or salary verifications they have authorized. Employees have unlimited access to their information and they never incur a fee for this access.
It is the employee's responsibility to provide the verifier with a salary authorization number in order to enable the verifier to access their salary information. Creating this number is a simple process. Employees can view a how-to video which is found on the employee portal.

6. What regulations is QC compliant with?
This is one of our most frequently asked employment verification legal questions. We are compliant with FCRA and HIPPA. We are also fully PCI compliant.
7. What questions can you answer for employment verification?
If you are an employer, your industry likely has guidelines regarding responding to employment verification requests. Generally, an employer can safely release information about an employee’s name, job title, and dates of employment. Sometimes, verification of employment questions request past performance reviews, but this can be treacherous legal ground. Answers to such questions are generally not provided.
At QuickConfirm, our employment verification services can help keep both verifiers and employers compliant with applicable laws and regulations.
