Introducing "E-Verify Self Check," An Online Tool That Allows Workers to Check Their Own Employment Eligibility Status
Today I am proud to announce the launch of E-Verify Self Check. E-Verify is a smart, simple, and effective web-based tool that allows us to work with employers to help them maintain a legal workforce. E-Verify Self Check is an innovative, first of its kind service that will help protect workers and streamline the E-Verify process for businesses.
Put simply, Self Check gives workers fast and secure access to their employment eligibility information before they apply for jobs. In this way, workers are able to identify whether there are any inaccuracies in their Social Security Administration or DHS records before they seek employment, and submit corrections for any inaccuracies ahead of time. Self Check also assists employers by reducing the number of tentative mismatches that could otherwise result when a worker’s government records are not updated.
Every aspect of E-Verify Self Check was designed to secure users’ personally identifiable information and to prevent misuse of the service. For example, E-Verify Self Check uses an identity assurance process to confirm that the person attempting to run a check is who he or she claims to be to avoid fraud or abuse.
