What Is E-Verify?

E-Verify is a free, Internet-based program operated by the U.S. federal government. The program compares information from an employee’s Form I-9 to U.S. government records. If the information matches, that employee is eligible to work in the United States. If there’s a difference, E-Verify alerts the employer and the employee is allowed to work while he or she resolves the problem within eight days. Involvement in the E-Verify program is voluntary for employers; however, enrollment is mandatory under certain circumstances. For instance, foreign students are only eligible for this extension if their employer participates in the E-Verify program.
