Every day employees initiate consumer processes – when applying for a mortgage, a credit card or for temporary government assistance, for example – that require their employers to respond to employment verification requests. But verifying these requests can often be complicated by regulations, confirming permissible purpose for verifiers, protecting employee data and labor-intensive paper-based processes. Stricter guidelines and an often-changing regulatory environment raise further concerns for compliance, risk mitigation and ensuring that employees can obtain the verifications they need in a secure and timely manner.

During this complimentary webinar, Equifax Workforce Solutions industry veterans, Janet Ford and Steve Schulz, will discuss verification issues from the perspective of all three process stakeholders – employers, verifiers who request information and employees. Webinar participants will hear about the market forces and evolving regulations that drive verifications and gain an understanding of how speed of response can impact availability of credit for a company's employees. Ford and Schulz will outline how an automated and effective process can benefit employers, verifiers and employees – helping them get the credit and assistance they deserve in their consumer lives, when they need it. They will also identify actionable best practices for achieving compliance, limiting liability and controlling the rising costs of verifications.

Attendees: HR and business professionals interested in learning about the regulatory developments driving an increasing volume of employment and income verification requests, and the ways in which they can effectively meet these demands while remaining compliant, are encouraged to attend this complimentary one-hour presentation.


"Are You Liable? Are You Compliant? Tackling Today's Verifications" is part of a series of educational webinars presented by Equifax Workforce Solutions' industry experts.
