E-Verify: Employee Rights and Responsibilities

Read this in: Spanish / Español

E-Verify is a web-based system that allows enrolled employers to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. E-Verify employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of newly hired employees by electronically matching information provided by employees against records available to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is important that you know your rights and responsibilities when you apply to work for an employer who participates in E-Verify and this web page provides the information you need on your rights.
