Employment Verification

Employment Verification Forms

Employee can fax employment verification forms to Human Resources Office at 505-563-5305 - Attention: Staffing

Employees can email forms via their Bureau of Indian Education email (BIE.edu) to the Human Resources Specialist that services their location. Contact your Business Office to identify who is your serving Human Resources Specialist.

We recommend that employees do not send Employment Verification Forms from a personal email address because of Personable Identifiable Information (PII) listed on the form and potential interception.

Employment verification forms MUST have the following:

  • Employee Social Security Number
  • Statement authorizing disclosure to third party
  • Employee wet signature and date OR digital signature with PIV card
  • Employee contact phone number

The Bureau of Indian Education Human Resources Office will contract the employee to validate identity and verify that requested data disclosure. Employees are responsible for being available otherwise delays can be expected.

The Bureau of Indian Education Human Resources Office will not fax or email completed employment verifications to third parties. Employees are responsible for submitting completed forms to appropriate party.
