I am a Wisconsin employer. Can I ask for an applicant's social security number on our application (before making a job offer)?

Thank you for your request. While a social security number is XXXXX a confidential piece of information that you as an employer or potential employer must protect, there is no law which prevents you or otherwise prohibits you from requesting the social security number on an application.

Please let me know if you need further information.
