E-verify now available nationwide

announced that E-Verify Self-Check, a program that allows job hunters to confirm their employment eligibility status, is now available in every state of the Nation.

E-verify available nationwide

Many employers use E-Verify to confirm their new employees’ work authorization. Now, employees can use the Self-Check services to determine if there are any discrepancies in their record, and to fix any such problems if necessary. This is a huge step forward for job seekers and will allow them to be more successful in their job applications. The USCIS stated: “[J]ob hunters in every state across the country, as well as Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, will be able to use Self Check to confirm their employment eligibility status.” “Self Check was developed through a partnership between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) to provide individuals a tool to check their own employment eligibility status, as well as guidance on how to correct their DHS and SSA records. It is the first online E-Verify service offered directly to workers.  Available in English and Spanish, Self Check enables individuals to enter the same information into Self Check that employers enter into E-Verify.”  Background Checks In the same way that many recommend applicants perform a background check on themselves prior to an interview, performing an e-verify check can unearth any concerning issues. With background checks, the issues may be different, but providing job applicants with both of these opportunities is no doubt going to strengthen the market. According to a recent report, the US economy added 243,000 jobs last month, showing a gradual improvement on what is no doubt a long road to recovery. The outlook is good so far in 2012, and fingers are crossed that this will continue. If you have any questions regarding e-verify or background screening for employment, feel free to contact us!]]>
