We’re very sorry, but we no longer provide a Subject’s employment information. The short answer is that they’re too expensive and unreliable. And then there’s the GLB – the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, enacted in 1999. Here’s why we won’t do them:
Other than getting a possible hit from “The Work Number” website, there’s really no magical database out there that provides this type of information. The Social Security Administration (SSA), certainly won’t give it to us. However, when we’re in the process of skip tracing someone, sometimes we’ll “accidentally” run across that information and will be happy to give it to you at no additional cost.
The information out there are the internet regarding employment locates is dismal. Be very careful. Many “Employment Locate Brokers” out there will charge you an outrageous fee up front and then provide you with old, obsolete information. Their excuse will be “But they were working there when we did the search!” Yeah, right. We also got tired of finding someone’s actual employment for our client’s, they initiate the wage garnishment – and then request a refund from us after the debtor quits. Never again.
Until there are new resources available, we’re going to continue to pass on providing these types of locates.
I have written a blog post detailing the best way to find someone’s current employment. Click on this link below for an article that I wrote on the subject:
