The Work Number ePayroll Services use strict measures to keep sensitive payroll information secure. Each time an employee accesses an ePayroll Service, a message appears on the Main Menu screen that states the date and time of the last successful logon to that employee’s data. This security measure reassures employees that unauthorized users have not accessed their personal information since their last logon. Encryption and restricted access procedures are standard with all TALX services.

In addition, when you logon to ePayroll, you enter a secure area, and you can tell by looking at the bottom of your Internet browser window. In Netscape Navigator, you may see a solid key icon or a solid padlock, indicating a secure session. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, there is a padlock icon at the bottom of the screen. If the padlock looks locked, you are in a secure area. If there is no padlock or it looks unlocked, you are not in a secure area. You can also look at your browser's address bar. When you are in a secure area, the web site address will begin https:// instead of the standard http://. The addition of the letter "s" indicates a secure connection. Whether it is on ePayroll or another web site, we encourage you to always make sure you are in a secure area before submitting sensitive data like your social security or credit card number.
