E-Verify Celebrates 2012!

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.

Signing up for E-Verify is easy. Visit the new enrollment page to get started.

The E-Verify program has been around for years and seen a great many tweaks and improvements and although not perfect, it works. What puzzles me is why employers resist using such an excellent tool? That said, I recently read an article about a raid by US immigration officers that netted a number of illegals employed on a construction site. It was suggested by the reporter that it was impossible to tell eligible job applicants from the ineligible because use of forged or stolen identity documents if rampant. Is this true?

Happy to see the growth of E-Verify in the year. I wish it continues growing year by year.

Previously before becoming an E-Verify participant, the company that I am currently employed at completed I-9 for its employees manually and we have been tracking re-verifications but this task has become very time consuming What are the regulations for re-verification (Ex. does an employee need to complete an online I-9 and submit for e-verify)? Thanks.

It's another giant expensive program that will be corrupted by the people who have the most money.

Sort of like ALL other giant expensive Federal Programs.
