Do you verify employment when renewing lease?

I don't normally but after the last tenant that left I will probably start.  I know that when my mom was in section 8 housing she had to bring proof of income every year.

@Holly Prokop  why do you ask? Did you just get burned by a tenant at lease renewal?

When renting I've never been asked to show proof of employment once I've signed the initial lease. If you're getting paid regularly and the tenant had a job when she started with the previous lease I'm not sure it matters.
