An employment history check is a safeguard for employers that there are no lies or exaggerations in the work experience or employment history of a candidate. It offers essential protection against fraudulent and inflated work history claims.

The human resource or payroll department of previous employers will be contacted to confirm details like dates of employment, positions held, remuneration and reasons for leaving. Discrepancies about past achievements or responsibilities will be followed up.

It typically takes between 1 to 5 working days to contact previous employers and generate a work history report.
