Fighting Fraud: E-Verify Can Now Verify Driver’s Licenses

Release Date:

E-Verify was recently upgraded to include a driver’s license verification feature. This is significant because driver’s licenses are presented by more than 80% of new hires to establish their identity during the employment eligibility verification process.

Mississippi is the first state to partner with the Department of Homeland Security to make driver’s license data available to be checked through E-Verify. E-Verify has an extremely high accuracy rate, and this anti-fraud enhancement makes the system even more reliable. In addition, E-Verify has recently added user-focused enhancements, including more help functions and streamlined enrollment.
