Verification of Employment

All employment verification inquiries for current or former RISD employees must be conducted in accordance with the following methods. No RISD employee should disclose information about any current or former employee in writing, over the telephone, or face-to-face without the permission of Human Resources. Designated individuals in Human Resources and Academic Affairs may provide verification of employment related to immigration matters. All other requests are addressed via The Work Number®.
