I am awaiting verification of employment for a company, and one of the last steps conducted over email has requested I sign a release form for education, employment and/or military information. The email implied it was for my high school, though I did provide a scanned document of my high school diploma, so I’m worrying it might also be for my past employment.
Keep in mind on the actual release form there is no hint which of the three fields would be investigated. What are the chances that this general release form could be meant for employment? And, a somewhat better question, what kind of sensitive information might be available if the release form is meant for investigating prior employment?
