What is E-Verify?

E-Verify is an internet-based government program that employers use to confirm the employment eligibility of their new hires. Nearly half of the states have some kind of E-Verify requirement. Our WeVerify I-9 solution helps employers comply with these requirements.

The E-Verify program compares information from a new employee's Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification- to Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Social Security Administration (SSA), and the Department of State (DOS) records to confirm that employee's legal status and verify that he or she is authorized to work in the United States.

E-Verify participation is currently required for all or some employee verification in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.
