What is E-Verify?
E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.
Why do people come to the United States illegally? They come here to work. The public can, and should, choose to reward companies that follow the law and employ a legal workforce.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is working to stop unauthorized employment. By using E-Verify to determine the employment eligibility of their employees, companies become part of the solution in addressing this problem.
Employment eligibility verification is good business and it’s the law.
Who Uses E-Verify?
While participation in E-Verify is voluntary for most businesses, some organizations are required by state law or federal regulation to use E-Verify.
