Who Do I Tell? – If I’m looking for a job, will I have to tell potential employers about my previous name?

It is likely that potential employers will ask if you had a different name in the past.  This is because they are likely to want to do checks on you.  They may well need to know your previous names, for instance, in order to verify your references, past employment history, education and qualifications.  You should always be truthful when replying to any such questions from your employer or potential employer, or it may adversely affect your employment.
