Georgia Dept. of Agriculture failed to use E-Verify

E-Verify is an Internet-based, free program run by the United States government that compares information from an employee’s Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 to data from U.S. government records. Benefits of E-Verify HRMorning and NumberUSA state the following advantages to the E-Verify system, displaying why and how it has become such a pivotal part of the employment screening process:

  • It allows the employer to query the government databases as to validity of documentation.
  • For those in vulnerable industries, it saves time and training by identifying unauthorized workers.
  • It is easy to use and free for employers.
  • An employer who uses the pilot in good faith cannot be held liable for hiring an illegal alien (use of the system is an affirmative defense.)
  • Mandatory use of E-Verify ensures that all U.S. businesses operate on a level playing field.
  • American taxpayers benefit because they don’t have to subsidize employers’ cheap labor by providing welfare.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) state that more than 353,000 employers use E-Verify at nearly 900,000 workplaces, and about 1,200 new businesses sign up for the program every week.
