How to check the record in the workbook
When hiring a new employee, the personnel service often has doubts about the authenticity of a record in his work record book. Some employees try to appear to the new employer in a more favorable light, therefore they falsify data about their previous work. The task of authenticating such a record is complicated by the fact that labor laws prohibit companies from requesting any additional documents from a candidate for a certain vacancy (not included in the approved list). That is why the staff are forced to consider any record in the work record book properly drawn up to be genuine. To check doubtful information in this document, you can use several methods, the choice of a particular option depends on the possibility of establishing contacts with the previous employer.

If an organization on whose behalf a dubious entry is made in the work record book of a new employee exists at the time of verification, you can find the phones of this company in open sources and try to find out the necessary information in its personnel service. Usually employees of this unit willingly go to meet, because they will recommend a good worker, and if there are signs of falsification - they will help colleagues to protect themselves from an unfair job candidate. It is much more difficult to check the record in the workbook in the event that the previous employer has terminated the activity or make contact with him impossible for certain reasons.

If it was not possible to find out the necessary information by means of a telephone call to the relevant organization, the personnel officer can request information in the municipal archive. You should make a request to provide information about the personnel of a particular company in a certain period of time. In the event that the previous employer is actually liquidated, information about his employees should be found in such an archive. Finally, the last option is to request personally identifiable information from the employee himself. Usually, candidates for vacant positions meet and provide data from the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation, and the staff of the new employer can check whether contributions have been made for this employee by the company whose fact of work is being questioned.
