E-Verify

E-Verify Program Reports

The E-Verify program is a powerful, efficient, and accurate tool for employers to confirm that their employees are work-authorized.  USCIS is constantly improving the E-Verify Program to ensure that employers using the system receive customer-focused service and the most accurate information on work-authorized individuals applying for employment.

Over the course of three years, four independent studies were completed by the Westat Corporation on E-Verify that focused on the accuracy of the program, employer opinions of   E-Verify, employer and employee experiences in Arizona after state legislative mandates went into effect, and E-Verify Employer Agent (EEAs). The results from each of the studies show that the E-Verify users have confidence in the system, find it straightforward to use and appreciate the amount of customer service they receive when using E-Verify.  

The Westat reports confirm that E-Verify is a strong program that is growing stronger.

Below is a summary description of each of the reports followed by a link to the full report and USCIS assessment and response to the report’s recommendations:
