Authorization For Release Of Information

Authorization for Release of Information

Certain legal documents are required by some employers before you as an employee may be taken into their company. Most of these legal documents may be obtained from previous employers. The authorization for Release of Information is to be signed between you and your employer which may be used if you are to transfer to a different line of work or under a different company. This authorization letter allows your previous or current employer to release or disclose private, confidential, and personal information about you and/or your employment in their company.

Note that the release of any information regarding you to anyone without your written consent is illegal and is punishable by law. The authorization for release of information also secures the safety of your employers, freeing them from liability in connection to information disclosed upon consignment of the agreement.

The contract itself will include your name, social security number, date of application, and position applied for and details of who you, as an applicant wants it to be sent to. The authorization for release of information may also be used if the person who holds your records is a personal or academic reference. This gives the person the permission to hand over any legal documents requested by your employers which may include anything from employment and education and other subjects which you have to specify. Any other documents shared which have not been specified by you is considered a violation of the law. Any photocopies of this document will also be as effective as the original.
