E-Verify Celebrates 2012!

Release Date:

We made many gains for the public last year. Let’s recap!

New Resources for Users:
Expanded Services:
  • Self Check became available nationwide in February 2012, giving everyone over the age of 16 access. A great tool for all job seekers, Self Check is a free, easy-to-use service that confirms your employment eligibility. 
  • Florida became the second state to join Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE). This fraud-prevention initiative makes it possible to verify department of motor vehicles information against the issuing state’s records.
Technical Enhancements:
  • E-Verify now supports mobile Web browsing as well as four major browsers: Internet Explorer (version 6.0 and above), Firefox (version 3.0 and above), Chrome (version 7.0 and above) and Safari (version 4.0 and above).
Employee Rights:
  • The Employee Rights Toolkit helps stakeholders educate workers on their rights in the employment eligibility verification process and more. Workers can use its multimedia and print resources to easily find information they need.
  • USCIS partnered with the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to create new Employee Rights webinars.
Growth:
  • E-Verify enrollment increased by 35% in 2012 and continues to grow by more than 1,500 employers each week. As of Jan. 12, 2013, more than 424,000 employers are enrolled to use E-Verify at more than 1.2 million worksites.
We expect E-Verify to keep growing and moving forward in 2013, providing vital assistance to even more users and stakeholders.
