Employment Eligibility Verification System (E-Verify)
Available from First Contact HR
First Contact HR verifies employment eligibility of new employees using E-Verify, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, USCIS, Verification Division, and the Social Security Administration. The employment eligibility verification system allows us to verify employees’ legal right to work in the United States.
Using information on the new hire's Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification Form) through E-Verify to the Social Security Administration and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), First Contact HR is able to determine whether the information matches government records and whether the new hire is authorized to work in the United States.
First Contact HR is a designated agent for this program. As such, if your employees work in and around sensitive areas such as power plants, utilities, ports, chemicals, airports or transportation, you should consider adding this program to your employment screening process. It is the only way that an employer can be absolutely sure that the applicant is eligible for employment in the United States.
