Many candidates fake their employment history to get better jobs, higher salaries, and better designations. They do so firstly because they are in a hurry to make good money and do better than their peers and, secondly they know that the system would allow them to get away with it. This trend has caught on majorly in the IT and the banking industry.
Employment verification in India is important to validate if a candidate has been working for the tenure, role and salary indicated on the resume. The process involves contacting Human Resources / Payroll department in previous employers to accurately determine the candidate’s work history.
The preferred method is to verify the entire employment history and to review the associated experience letters and salary slips for each of the employers. This means contacting the earlier and/or current employer and receiving verification directly from the HR department. Feedback is solicited on a variety of points including:
Current employer verification should never be conducted without the candidates consent, as it might influence his/her career in a negative way.
Carry out employment verification process for at least two employers (current and earlier).
