Would anyone be so kind to please explain what is Employee ID and where can I get this information online on my own? The term "on my own" means that I want to find this myself without asking/calling/emailing employer. I thought Employee ID is EIN but it seems like this is not true. The EIN looks like "12-3456789" but what I see on PayStub the "Employee ID", whatever this is, could be fewer digits, sometimes four digits, sometimes five, something just three etc. So what is Employee ID and where can I get this for particular employer on my own? I don't have any records of past taxes so impossible to check historically - I need direct info where to get this. Thank you!
Employee ID is the number or code your company uses to identify you uniquely.
Its format is completely up to the employer, and it has no meaning outside of this employer.
