An Authorization to Check Credit and Employment Reference allows a company to
collect data and check the references of a potential employee. The information verified
includes, but is not limited to, the employee's previous employment, character
references, credit history, criminal history, and educational qualifications. This form is
ideal for small businesses that want to obtain permission from potential employees to
conduct background checks.
