How does the E-Verify process work?
E-Verify works by electronically comparing the information from an employee’s Form I 9 with records available to SSA and/or DHS to verify the identity and employment eligibility of each newly hired employee and/or employee assigned to a covered federal contract.
What are the requirements for E-Verify?
Once an employee is hired, employers participating in E-Verify ask their employees to fill out an I-9 form or an Employment Eligibility Verification Form (name, social security number, address, and date of birth) and E-Verity’s software checks these forms against records from the Social Security Administration (SSA)

What happens if you E-Verify late?

Can you E-Verify existing employees?
