An Employment Verification (or VOE—Verification of Employment) is the most commonly requested type of verification. It is the perfect verification if you just need to know where an applicant is employed, but don't need to understand his or her "ability to pay." The information provided comes directly from employers and includes basic job information including: employer name and address, headquarters location, job title (when available), employment status, most recent hire date, and length of time with the employer.
