Current Employees

All active University faculty, other academic, academic professional, graduate assistant/hourly, or academic hourly employees must use the University of Illinois Online Employment Verification System.  By doing so, vendors such as banks, mortgage lenders, and government approved housing can access employment information immediately and process the loan application or housing request much faster.  (NOTE:  Requests for information other than salary, dates or title (e.g. performance, job duties or attendance) should be handled by the employing unit.  Employment verifications for immigration purposes should be handled by the employing unit when the employee is employed in only one unit.  If the employee is employed by multiple units, the request should be forwarded to Academic Human Resources for handling.  Employment Verification requests for Parkland College purposes should be directed to the appropriate HR Office.  Employment Verification requests regarding a graduate fellowship should be directed to the Graduate College for handling.  All other requests for current employees should be handled by the employee using the Online Employment Verification System:
