How it Works
I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification searches are conducted through the Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify system. The E-Verify system compares information entered on Form I-9 with records in the Social Security Administration and DHS databases in order to verify the identity and employment eligibility of new hires.
Like the I-9 process, E-Verify should be completed within three business days of the applicant’s hire date. Penalties levied by the DHS for non-compliance with the three-day rule range from $500 to $1500 per incident.
