U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced April 13, 2015, the nationwide expansion of the myE-Verify “one-stop shop for employees” service.
Now workers across the country can check their employment eligibility against records used by E-Verify, the free Web-based service run by the Department of Homeland Security and used by 600,000 employers to verify employment eligibility.
E-Verify was established in 1997 and compares information from workers’ I-9 forms to Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security records to assess U.S. employment authorization. Employer participation in the program is largely voluntary; however, federal contractors are required to use E-Verify, and there are several states with laws regarding employers’ usage of E-Verify, either requiring or prohibiting its use.
USCIS developed myE-Verify after Congress requested that services be offered to allow workers to participate in the employment verification process.
