Acknowledging Employer's Use of E-Verify

  • Dark

Article Summary


US law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States - either US citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization.

E-Verify is a US government program that lets employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States.

Employers who choose to utilize E-Verify provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with information from each new hire's I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) form to confirm work authorization. This information is compared to data in US government records.

Consult the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website for information about:

  • E-Verify is a US-only task.

  • E-Verify Handbook (Employment Eligibility Verification Form), M-274

  • E-Verify Employer Agent Reference Guide, M-776

  • Form I-9

If an employer utilizes E-Verify, you must acknowledge that you understand and agree to its use.

  1. Review the E-Verify information.

  2. Acknowledge that you understand and agree to the employer's use of E-Verify.

  3. Contact your staffing specialist with any questions or concerns.
