E-Verify for Businesses

As an employer, you want to do the right thing. But how can you insure that your prospective hire has a legal right to work in the United States? The simple solution: use E-Verify (formerly Basic Pilot Program) , the Department of Homeland Security's Electronic Employment Verification Program.

E-Verify does this by providing access to the Verification Information System (VIS) database.
