E-Verify Work Eligibility
In order to retain valuable employees and reduce turnover, employers must take every step possible to hire U.S. Citizens and legally eligible immigrants. The Form I-9 E-Verify system is a voluntary program available for all employers, operated by the United States Government to assist in certifying each newly hired employee’s eligibility to legally work in the United States.
Why Should Companies Use the Form I-9 E-Verify system?
The Form I-9 E-Verify system is currently the best method available to employers that prevents and eliminates mismatched social security numbers. In a nutshell, when an employer submits a newly hired employee’s name, date of birth, and social security number to the Form I-9 E-Verify system, the Social Security Administration will flag the request if the person’s name, date of birth, and Social Security number do not match their records. A mismatch could indicate the person is undocumented and not authorized to work in the U.S.
Companies that utilize the E-verify program help improve the accuracy of wage and tax reporting, protect jobs for authorized, legally-compliant American workers, and help uphold the integrity of their workforce.

Who is Required to Use the Form I-9 E-Verify system?
As of 2009, any employer awarded Federal government contracts or that provides services for the Federal government as a contractor or subcontractor is required to begin using the Form I-9 E-Verify system. The new rule implemented in Executive Order 12989, as amended by President George W. Bush on June 6, 2008, directed Federal agencies to require contractors to electronically verify employment eligibility of their employees.
