Employers are required to verify the employment eligibility and identity of all US-based workers hired after November 6, 1986. This is done by completing Employment Eligibility Verification forms (Forms I-9) for all employees, including US citizens. Employers who hire or continue to employ individuals knowing that they are not authorized to be employed in the United States may face civil and criminal penalties. Employers may use E-Verify, an Internet-based system, that will allow it to compare information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from US Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.
