Why was our employment verification charge higher than expected?
If your company verifies employment history, you will see third-party pass-through fees associated with these screenings. These fees are assessed by industry verification databases to automatically verify employment history.
We cannot provide a list of employment verification pass-through fees because Checkr partners with multiple vendors, and charges will vary based on the vendor conducting service. The fees are, however, specifically called out in line items on the Checkr invoice. Checkr first searches available databases, such as The Work Number for Everyone, that charge a fee when the verification is successfully completed by way of checking that database. You may find a separate fee assigned for each place of employment being verified for the candidate.
Note: Checkr does not mark up any fees; instead we send them in your invoice at cost.
