What documents are acceptable from new hires to help NYP verify previous employment or education during the onboarding process?

If you have received and accepted a conditional offer of employment from a Talent Acquisition Recruiter, you will begin NYP’s post-offer, pre-employment onboarding process. All offers of employment are contingent upon successfully completing this process. You’ll find that NYP has a thorough onboarding process for new employees, to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. 

One of the steps in the onboarding process is the comprehensive background review, including, but not limited to, verification of employment history and education. To help with this “behind-the-scenes” part of the process, we have enlisted the help of Certiphi, Inc. to perform the background check.

If Certiphi is unable to successfully verify one or more items such as employment or education, a member of the Certiphi team will contact you directly to request additional documentation. If this happens, it is important that you respond with the requested documentation as quickly as possible to ensure we have enough time to complete your background verification prior to your start date. Any delays in providing requested documentation to Certiphi may impact your start date.

Please redact any confidential/personal information such as Personally Identifiable Information (DOB/SSN etc.) and salary before sending documentation to Certiphi or NYP.
