All employers in the United States must verify that their new employees are eligible for US work. As mentioned in previous articles, employers may wish to use the government’s E-Verify services. Alternatively, employers can complete paper copies of Form I-9.
Workers have rights during the employment eligibility verification process. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) provides an interactive “quiz” with information about Form I-9, E-Verify and Self-Check. Employers may wish to take the quiz to refresh themselves on workers’ rights in the employment verification process. The quiz may be accessed by clicking here.
