How Employees access their Employment Data Report

Employees have access to a free annual Employment Data Report or EDR. An EDR is a report, per the Fair Credit Reporting Act, to allow transparency to an employee’s information contained on The Work Number and a list of all verifiers who have attempted access to employee’s employment records in the prior 24 months.

Login Instructions:

Visit www.theworknumber.com

Click the “Employee” tab 

Click “LOG IN”

Enter your employer’s name or code (Employer code was provided in the Welcome email to the employer.)

First-time users: If you’ve never logged into the application before, click on “Register Now” to start the process. Users will be required to enter personal information to verify the account they are attempting to access and validate identity.

Returning users: You will log in as usual with your same username and password you created.

Some users will be sent a One-Time Passcode via phone, text, or email. Passcodes are sent in real time, so please enter it immediately into the application without exiting the login session or closing the browser.

 If we are unable to send you a One-Time Passcode via email or phone, you may be sent a One-Time Passcode in the mail. You will have 12 days from the date of mailing to receive the passcode and enter it into the system. If you cannot receive a One-Time Passcode, you maybe prompted to contact a representative from your company to help verify your identity and gain access to the application.

Once you have successfully logged in, users will be required to create a personal username and password that you will use anytime you login into the web site.
