Uber Employment Verification
Driver Concern: ☀ Uber Employment Verification ☀
Answer ✎ At some point or another, most likely everyone will need to prove their employment status or at least their income in life. Another question that many drivers that have contracted with Uber frequently ask is, “Can Uber verify employment?”
▸Working As An Independent Contractor: Great question! But, unfortunately since you are an independent contractor and not an employee with Uber, they’re not able to respond to employment verification requests.
▸No Guarantee: This is because Uber cannot verify or guarantee income, since the amount of money you make is totally up to you and when you want to drive on their system.
No way, Uber can verify that you work consistently full-time at a certain amount of pay. Because it would simply be not true.
▸Being Self-Employed: In this case, you will need to let the person/company that need to verify this information on you, that you are self-employed. Most companies have their own requirements for verifying self-employment and will be more than happy to work with you on such.
▸Verifying Self-Employment: Typically, you can verify your wages with Uber by showing a copy of your bank statement or tax return. Or, you can always print your payment history at https://partners.uber.com by clicking on the “invoices” tab.
Your bank statement and payment history might be all the verification they need.
▸Customer Service Reps: If you were a customer service agent working from home for Uber, then all your employment verification needs would be handled through Zero Chaos, the staffing agency that managed your pay and contracts.
■ Update 9/16: In response to a potential employer’s or financial institution’s request for a reference/verification of your employment with Uber; please be aware that Uber still does not provide this information for independent contractors.
Drivers and other non-employed workers said they have had success with showing a copy of their contract and bank statement used in response to requests for a reference or proof of contracted work with Uber.
You also may want to provide a copy of your statements from hours invoiced in response to requests for verification of financial information.
