United States law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the U.S. — either U.S. citizens or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. E-Verify is a fast, accurate online service that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9 to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility. The E-Verify Connector provides tight integration between E-Verify and your system, making employee record keeping a seamless process. With E-Verify Connector, employment eligibility reports are automatically saved within the application’s employee records, where they can be easily accessed and referenced for compliance purposes.
Monetary penalties for knowingly hiring and continuing to employ unauthorized workers under the Immigration and Nationality Act range from $375 to $16,000 per violation, with repeat offenders receiving penalties at the higher end.*
