The Work Number
The Work Number Overview
The Work Number® from Equifax provides automated income and employment verification for Publicis employees. Most often, when applying for a job, loan, credit, lease agreement or government–sponsored programs, you are asked to consent to having your income and/or employment verified. By directing verifiers to The Work Number Service your income and employment information can be securely and easily verified via The Work Number Service website, 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
Each pay period, Payroll securely transmits your employment and income data via ADP to The Work Number Service. The Work Number stores the payroll data and only releases the information to verifiers once the appropriate credentials are utilized to access your data.
The Work Number protects your personal data by credentialing all verifiers prior to system use, authenticating the verifier at login, requiring the verifier to have Consumer Consent and a valid Permissible Purpose for requesting your data, and also monitoring and auditing verifier activity to ensure compliance with these safeguards.
Note on Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Compliance
The Work Number complies with The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which ensures that employees can see who is requesting their data and provides a mechanism to dispute data that they believe to be inaccurate.
