Joining MPN stuck on Employment verification
We are trying to join MPN, however we have been stuck on the the Employment Verification step.
The exact message is:
"We were not able to verify your email domain. Follow below instructions to fix"
I have chatted with support a few times, however that is not going anywhere. They have asked me to update my office 365 profile etc. which I have done, however we are still stuck on that step of the process.
I have also read the Business verification - We were not able to verify your business details forum post and one of the users recommends that we submit an incident. Which I tried, however when I click on Submit Incident I get to a page which tells me that I do not have access to and I decided to post in the community having exhausted all other means (well I still have not tried to call but I will need to mentally prepare for a call a bit longer 🙂 ).
Can anyone help out with getting past this step?
Solved! Go to Solution.
No, we have not progressed. Keep trying different versions of the same things and getting rejected on the employment verification. I have only worked on the MPN legal info. It appears they may also be asking for something in CSP. I will spend some more time today, reply to the ticket again... and see what we get. Will definitely share here when we get resolution.
@v-jillarmour - I've got exactly the same issue as literally everyone else on this thread. Probably more of an issue because I've finally been blocked from submitting information. Either because I've timed out or used the upload system to complain.
Any idea how long it's going to take to get my support ticket looked at?
@alexchira OMG you are kidding me!! What in the heck!! 😮 Can you share your ticket number with me again please? I will do what I can to find out some info for you. So sorry for your troubles here and my delayed response. I was out on holiday.
@v-jillarmour , solved now. I've (re)uploaded the documents and I got lucky :). I've activated my Microsoft Action Pack asap, in case this got reverted.
I think there might be a bug, a concurrent job that triggers and invalidates the process, running in parallel with the actual business validation process. The job that finishes last sets the status for next stage. See email logs below.

@alexchira Thank you for sharing this information on the page for other partners to see in case they experience the same thing! I would suggest you open a new ticket sharing this information with the support team so they can look into it, maybe they are unaware.
Glad you are verified and up and running again!!! 🌻
@mr_pw I've just checked your ticket again, they have uploaded your new documents for review! This is good news, things are in motion. 🙂 I have reached out to the team, but it don't think it helps much to be honest. 🤔 Keep me posted please!!
The thing that bothers me the most is that my issue can be resolved in less that 10 min if an actual human being contacted me. I am getting stuck because the system can't verify that I own the domain. I have multiple ways to prove that, all of which takes a few minutes to show. But no matter what I send into the verification system, it gets auto rejected without an explanation.
I am sure this is the same with the other people waiting in queue for help. Feels like Microsoft is literally causing your own delay in partner verification.
@Bogdan_Mircea I checked your ticket that was submitted yesterday and it is active. There are a lot of partners with tickets ahead of you, so its just a waiting game now. You have done all you need to (for now) to move forward. Hang in there.
We have faced the exact same problem for a month now, trying to verify our legal information with no success. We have uploaded every possible document for Employment Verification and Business Verification.
There is no sense for the whole procedure. Once Employment Verification is ok, they proceed to Business Verification, which is rejected. Then the process marks Employment Verification as rejected too, without any option to upload files, to fix this step! Madness. We also opened a ticket NR 2203020040003967, from March 2, 2022, with no reply for 15 days now. Moreover, our Silver competency is expired; we cannot renew it, so we cannot have access to benefits or use the Silver badge for our company! Any ideas for solving this awful situation will be really appreciated
@Anthimosz FINALLY! Glad to hear it, well glad you've been verified, but not that you had to wait two months to get it done. Sorry you had to experience that. 🌻
It is a month now without a solution to our problem. Last reply two weeks ago.
I wonder how we can believe in Microsoft products and sell them when we have this frustrating treatment
@Anthimosz I'm sorry to hear of your troubles here, it's frustrating I know. I've tried reaching out to the team on your ticket, but I haven't had much luck in the past escalating others tickets. Fingers crossed! Please keep us updated on the status! Hang in there.
Hi @Anthimosz! I understand it's frustrating to be in limbo for so long without contact. They should be reaching out to you any day now! I did check your ticket and it is active, so that is good news! 🙂
I hope that all is well,
If we don't get it fixed before our expiry date, what can we do to make sure that our operations can continue?
Frankly, that would a shame that a Microsoft Partner cannot get their administrative issue fixed, face to our clients.
I hope that all is well,
Can you confirm that our ticket # 2203100040007426 is still open please?
We hope to fix the issue before we get our operations blocked.
