Why Are Employment History Checks Important?

With increased competition in the job market, it is a sad fact that more and more candidates are resorting to dishonesty in an attempt to get the job they desire. As a result, employment history checks have become critical in determining whether a candidate possesses the relevant skills and necessary experience to perform the job.

CV Insight confirms your candidate’s employment history directly from the reference source -human resources, payroll or line management.

When conducting a background check on a prospective employee, it is generally recommended to verify their work history for the past 5 years. This time frame allows you to gain insight into the candidate’s recent employment experience, job stability, and relevant skills. However, the specific period you choose to check can vary depending on the requirements of the position, industry norms, and the employer’s discretion.

Checking a new employee’s work history over a specified period helps verify the accuracy and authenticity of the information provided by the candidate. Employers want to ensure that the candidate’s stated work experience, job titles, dates of employment, Gaps in employment and responsibilities align with the information provided in their CV or job application.

Investigating employment gaps can help employers identify any potential red flags or concerns. For example, a pattern of frequent or unexplained gaps in employment might indicate issues such as job hopping, inability to retain employment, or undisclosed reasons for leaving previous positions.
