Employment Verification for Educational Leadership Staff


4.  Submit your Request.
Please submit your completed Employment Verification Request Form to one of the entities below depending upon the time of year.


During the School Year:

Requests should be submitted directly to the school the employee works in.

Employee’s School

Mail, Fax, or Walk-in:

If you are a third-party and do not know the contact information of the employee’s school, use our Find a School” tool. To use this tool, you must either know the employee’s school number (e.g., PS 58) or name (e.g., Carroll School), and the borough in which it is located. Submit your request to the attention of “School Payroll Secretary” via mail or fax.



During School Breaks (including holidays and summer vacation):

Requests should be submitted directly to your (the employee’s) HR Director by email, fax, or mail. The HR Director is typically the HR person who coordinated the hiring of the employee (for example, provided the employee with benefits information and paperwork, helped him/her obtain a DOE photo ID, etc.).

If you are unsure of the HR Director’s contact information, you may obtain it by contacting HR Connect at (718) 935-4000. However, you will be required to provide the school where the employee works. HR Connect will not be able to assist you if you cannot provide this information.


Turnaround Time:
Requests are typically fulfilled between 2-20 business days.

Please be advised that we do not complete third-party forms.
