The employment verification form should include the name of the applicant and applicant's Social Security number at the top. Legally, the applicant must sign this form to give the employer legal permission to share private details about the applicant's work history. Directly below the applicant's name are spaces for the landlord's signature and dates, and the landlord can provide a brief explanation about the purpose of the request.

Divide the upper and lower portions of the verification form with a "To Be Completed By Employer" heading. The verification form can ask the employer to share the applicant's hourly, monthly and annual income details. It can also request the number of hours worked per week for an hourly employee.
