Keeping an accurate LinkedIn company page ensures that professionals searching for your business on LinkedIn won’t come across fake employees.

Occasionally a LinkedIn member will be incorrectly listed as an employee on your company page. This may be a mistake from an accidental click or from someone misspelling his company’s name while entering information. Some users don’t check closely and select the wrong company when there are multiple companies with a similar name. Once in a while, a fake member will impersonate an employee at a company to hurt its reputation or for other malicious reasons.

Removing employees requires submitting a proper request to LinkedIn Customer Support, which will fix this for you.

Tip: This process also applies to any inaccurate information on your SlideShare account.

A LinkedIn company page admin can’t remove employees from a company page.

You will need to submit a request to report inaccurate employment.

The LinkedIn team will review your request and respond.

Below are the steps you need to follow to report an inaccurate employee featured on a LinkedIn company page. 

  1. Log into your company’s LinkedIn page.
  2. Click the link for the incorrectly listed employee’s profile. Note the person’s full name and the web address for his/her profile page.
  3. Go to the LinkedIn’s Contact Us Page.
  4. Copy and paste the URL of the inaccurate employee account into the form
  5. Explain how you know this account or other information to be inaccurate or false. List the person’s full name, the Web address for his profile page and an explanation for why he should be removed from your company page.
  6. Add any useful attachments or screenshots to ensure the LinkedIn support team understand who exactly needs to be removed.
  7. Click the “Continue…” button to submit your request. You’ll receive a confirmation email and a ticket reference number to access the Support History Web page. Customer service will contact you when the person is removed or if it requires additional information.
  8. Type your full name in the list box in the online form. Your full name will act as your digital signature.
  9. You will receive an email confirmation from Linkedin –  an auto-response email – a few minutes later.
  10. One day after you have submitted your request, a LinkedIn Consumer Support Specialist will send you an email confirming that LinkedIn is notifying the alleged infringer. See the email below (framed in red)
  11. Wait until the LinkedIn Support team fix removes the fake employee from your LinkedIn company page. This might take a couple of weeks.
