I9 and E-Verify

What is E-Verify, and Why Should I Use It for My Company?

 

E-Verify is an electronic way of checking an individual’s employment eligibility. This process is voluntary for a lot of employers, but for many others, it’s mandatory. Does your company have contracts (or subcontracts) with the government? Do those contracts contain the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause? If so, it’s mandatory for you to participate in E-verify, and we can help get you started.

In the U.S., it is unlawful to knowingly hire or continue the employment of unauthorized workers. The IRCA, or Immigration Reform and Control Act, requires employers to authenticate a new-hire’s eligibility status by completing the Form I-9 and viewing the documents provided by the new-hire. E-Verify takes this process a step further by comparing the information that the new-hire has provided on the Form I-9 to data from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA).

Don’t be caught off guard when it comes to verifying employment eligibility based on an employee’s work status. There are countless businesses out there that, either knowingly or unknowingly, violate work status verification standards on a frequent basis. These employers may face serious legal and financial consequences, even if they’re unaware of the errors.

Performing I-9 and E-Verify services is something that PSI specializes in. We help businesses and organizations process these verifications to the strictest of standards and methods. PSI helps you make sure that your staff is legal and authorized to work in the U.S. For more information on I-9 forms and E-Verify, head over to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
