E-Verify is the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) internet-based system, allowing businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees. This feature applies to both U.S. and foreign citizens and determines an individual’s eligibility to work in the United States. E-Verify determines employment eligibility by comparing information from an employee’s Form I-9 to their records available by the DHS.

Operating E-Verify

By law, employers must complete Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. E-Verify is not required but is simply a way to check an employee’s status. E-Verify operates by comparing an employee’s I-9 Form to millions of government records. E-Verify offers millions of hiring sites, registered employee records, and thousands of participating companies. If an employee seems to be ineligible for work in the U.S., E-Verify will alert the employer.
