2.2 Enroll Verification Locations

Corporate administrators can enroll the employer’s verification locations in E-Verify through the corporate administrator account. In addition, an existing employer account may be linked to the corporate administrator account by a program administrator (see Appendix A).

IMPORTANT: A verification location should not be added if an employer account already exists.

To enroll a verification location, the corporate administrator must provide the information for that location in E-Verify. Although, a corporate administrator account does not require an MOU, an MOU must be electronically signed for each verification location that is enrolled in E-Verify.

If a verification location no longer needs an E-Verify account, a corporate administrator or program administrator must terminate that account. To terminate a verification location’s account, see Terminate Company Participation – Process Overview in Section 2.6

To enroll a new verification location in E-Verify, follow the steps in Enroll Verification Location-Process Overview.
