Starting Aug. 1, the University will use JobTrax Inc. to provide automated verifications of employment and income.
When employees need to have current employment or salary confirmed, they will direct third parties to verifyjobhistory.com.
“This will streamline the verification process when employees are applying for loans, a home mortgage or apartment lease, and it is completely secure,” Dorene Spotts, fiscal manager in the Controller’s Office, said.
Employees will provide the third party with UT’s code: 2419.
An employee also will need to supply either his or her Rocket number or full name and date of birth.
“That information is needed for employment verification,” Spotts said. “For income verifications, employees control who has access to their information.”
To provide access for income authentication, employees would go to verifyjobhistory.com, create an account, and generate an authorization code to provide the third party.
“Creating an account is only necessary for salary verification,” Spotts stressed.
With the switch to JobTrax’s automated service next month, the Human Resources and Talent Development Department and the Payroll Department will no longer handle requests for employment and income verifications.
