Why should my company participate in E-Verify?

E-Verify provides your company the following benefits:

  • Allows you to verify that your employees are authorized to work in the United States and provides a response in as little as three to five seconds
  • Provides extensive resources to assist you, including training, webinars and a dedicated hotline
  • Is free of charge
  • Provides a “rebuttable presumption” that you are in compliance with employment eligibility laws and
  • Your state may require the use of E-Verify
