Where to Submit Your Request
Depending on the time of year, you should submit the completed Employment Verification Request as follows:
During the School Year
Requests should be submitted directly to the school the employee works in.
If you are a third-party and do not know the contact information of the employee’s school, use the DOE’s “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.
- Requests are typically fulfilled in 2-20 business days.
- Please be advised that we do not complete third-party forms.
