As a US employer it is incumbent upon you to ensure that anyone you choose to employ should be eligible to work in the US according to federal law. You must verify the employment authorization and identity of each person hired after November 6th 1986. You also have to complete and retain a Form I-9 for every employee.
October 25, 2016 – Pleasant Hill, California. Background Profiles, an employee screening and background check service, is proud to announce that the company has updated two key information pages on the timely topics of e-Verify and I-9 compliance. Under current law, many employers are required to pro-actively verify employee eligibility for work in the United States. The newly updated pages help employers educate themselves about how to outsource some of this workload to a sophisticated employee screening service.
