Employee Rights and Responsibilities

It is important that you know your rights and responsibilities when you apply to work for an employer who participates in E-Verify. Employers who use E-Verify must follow E-Verify rules and responsibilities and protect the privacy of their employees. If you believe an employer is not following the E-Verify rules listed in the 'Employee Rights Overview' or has discriminated against you, we encourage you to report it.
