E-Verify Information

U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary work authorization. Through E-Verify, employers electronically verify that their newly hired employees are legally authorized to work in the United States.

E-Verify is an internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security in partnership with the Social Security Administration and allows employers to confirm an individual’s employment eligibility in the United States.

Under the E-Verify rules, effective September 8, 2009, federal agencies subject to the Federal Acquisition Regulation are required to modify, and include in new contracts, a provision that requires federal contractors and subcontractors to use E-Verify for existing team members who have substantial duties on such federal contracts.
