When you work for various companies and the federal government it is difficult to give perspective new employers a way to verify it.
The federal government gives out a handout starting off with “Buying a home?…” Then it tells about an automated service that provides the ability to quickly provide proof of employment or income.
A call to The Work Number landed me on hold for five minutes. Then I was told that in order for a person to verify information about me they had to pay, yes that’s right, pay to get it.
At www.theworknumber.com a person has to create a sign in and I was told that perspective employers have to pay there also in order to verify employment.
Nowhere on the handout does it mention that this information can only be obtained by payment. Good luck getting a potential new employer to pay for that!
