How can my employment be verified if Stritch is closed?
We encourage employees to retain documents in print or forwarded to your personal email to assist future employers in verifying employment. These include:
- WARN, termination or separation letter: This is a letter that formally documents the termination of your employment, but not your start date. It should be printed on company letterhead.
- Employment/teaching contracts: Employment/teaching contracts and agreements can be used to establish a work history.
- Referral letters: Referral letters from former supervisor(s) can help establish not only dates of employment but also provide a positive endorsement of you as an employee. Ask for these letters so that you can verify employment at a later date. This is a good source for those who have reported to the same manager since hire date.
- Pay stubs/direct deposit notifications: Old pay stubs or notifications of direct deposits can establish that you were on Stritch's payroll.
- Tax forms: If you no longer have old tax forms, including W-2s, contact the IRS. They may be able to help you get copies.
- Unemployment claim documentation: If you applied for unemployment after your job ended, the documentation should contain the name of your previous employer.
In addition, credit reports may verify employment as well.
Please use caution in copying, printing and forwarding documents with confidential personal information.
We will update this post if additional methods of verification become available.
