Typically, potential employers will want to check the truthfulness and validity of the assertions made by a candidate on a resume or job application. For example, a potential employer may want to be assured that the candidate had not been fired from a previous position or that his educational credentials were in fact earned by him. However, past and present employers and schools may be hesitant to release this information for fear of violating the candidate's privacy. To combat this, a potential employer can use an Authorization to Release Information. This release is signed by the candidate when he applies for a position and expressly allows past and present employers and schools to release information to the employer regarding such things as performance evaluations, work-related characteristics and termination records.

This form can be used in all states.

This package contains: (1) Instructions and Checklist for the Authorization to Release Information (the "AuthorizationÉĚ); (2) Information regarding the Authorization; (3) the Authorization.
