Leverage our leadership in I-9 and E-Verify solutions
With real-time reporting and tracking, our electronic E-Verify services will minimize your risk exposure and keep you fully compliant in the wake of changing regulations, intensified immigration audits, and expanding E-Verify requirements for state and private businesses.
Benefit from a simple yet effective approach
After the electronic I-9 form is completed on the Maximus electronic portal, employee data is automatically submitted to the E-Verify program. The majority of employees are successfully and immediately verified/work authorized; however, if a non-verification or a tentative confirmation is returned, the Maximus solutions helps employers ensure that this difficult process is managed and tackled until completion. Managers are able to view in real-time the status of an E-Verify case to ensure they take the required steps to complete the process. It's as easy as that.
Understand why E-Verify is important to your business
- E-Verify is a web-based system that allows employers to electronically validate the employment eligibility of newly hired workers.
- In 2009, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security made it mandatory for federal contractors and subcontractors to use E-Verify to validate that employees are eligible to work in the United States.
- Three states (Arizona, Mississippi, and South Carolina) require E-Verify participation for all employers, both public and private.
- Nine other states (Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Nebraska and Utah) require E-Verify participation for those working in the public domain: state agencies, contractors or subcontractors.
Common E-Verify questions
- What is E-Verify?
Employers may have heard of the E-Verify platform, but how can it benefit employers when verifying employee information? E-Verify is an internet-based system that allows employers to compare information provided by employees on Form I-9 against records held by the Social Security Administration and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
- How can employers use E-Verify?
The E-Verify website offers useful guidance on how employers can use E-Verify to compare employee information with official records held on file.
- Should employers use a designated E-Verify agent?
One question we are often asked is should employers use a designated E-Verify agent to complete employment eligibility checks on their behalf. There are a number of reasons for and benefits to using an agent, including:
- If you do not have the necessary equipment, such as internet access or a computer to use E-Verify.
- If you do not have the staff available or the time to use E-Verify.
- If you already outsource your Form I-9 process and also wish to outsource E-Verify processes.
