Employment verification documentation is often difficult to obtain.
Requiring clients to provide paycheck stubs or a verification form completed by their employer works when they are still receiving financial assistance and active case management. You can brainstorm mutually acceptable solutions with employer partners. Collaboration with resettlement colleagues can improve your success rate.
Sometimes nothing works. Here’s a new barrier and a question from Becca Miller, Employment Specialist with Catholic Charities in Louisville, KY.
More employers are using TheWorkNumber.com for employment verification, which requires payment so we are often unable to verify employment. Does anyone have successful experience navigating TheWorkNumber? Are there other solutions we could think about?
