Employee Verification

The Office of Human Resources has outsourced their employee verification process to a third party source, The Work Number. If a contact calls asking for employee verification of a University employee The Work Number can be reached at 1-(800)-367-5690. If a contact asks for it, UW-Madison's employer code is 18032. 

If anyone asks for a salary code, please inform them that the employee in question must verify a salary code before any employer can gain access. Our office will never have information on any individual salary codes. 

If anyone has any questions about the third party source, they can be directed to the Service Department at (608) 890-1501
