E-Verify, an Internet-based system operated by USCIS in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA); allows participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees. Approximately 98.3 percent of all E-Verify queries are automatically confirmed without any need for employee action. Note that the use of E-Verify is voluntary. Please visit USCIS’s web site, “E-Verify” for page detail information.

Form I-9 is the Employment Eligibility Verification form which all U.S. employers must complete and retain. This form must be completed for all employees; citizens and noncitizens. The employer must examine the form information and the identification used to determine if they are reasonably genuine. Please visit USCIS’s web site, “I-9 Central Home” page for detail information.
