1.2 Background

E-Verify is an easy-to-use web-based program that builds on the Form I-9 process by allowing enrolled employers to quickly confirm every new hire’s eligibility to work in the United States. Employers create cases based on information taken from a new hire’s Form I-9. You should take care to avoid E-Verify case mistakes and misuse. Some types of misuse may leave you subject to legal action and/or termination of your participation in E-Verify.
