It is very common for prospective employers, financial institutions and residential property managers to contact the city for information on a former or current employee’s work history and/or salary. All requests for employment verification should be referred to the Human Resources Department for response.
The City of Irving's Human Resources Department responds to all employment verification requests in an accurate, professional and prompt manner in accordance with city policy and procedure. Accordingly, in a typical employment verification,
only the following information will be verified:
- Date of hire
- Date of separation (if applicable)
- Last position held
- Rate of pay or compensation
If the requestor needs more information, then they must have a release signed by the current or past employee to give authorization to release additional information. Without a signed release from the employee, only the above information can be released by Human Resources Department staff.
To learn about the employment verification process, refer to the Employment Verification policy on Inet or visit the Human Resources Department at City Hall, 825 W. Irving Blvd. For more information, contact Senior Employee Relations Advisor TeRena Colbert at email@example.com or (972) 721-7704.
