E-Verify / Employment Eligibility Verification

This post-hire product will verify if your applicant is legally allowed to work in the United States. Information is accessed from the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration to verify your applicant’s right-to-work status. All federal contractors and sub-contractors are required by law to verify their employees’ eligibility to legally work in the U.S. In addition, more than a dozen states also require or strongly encourage E-Verify on certain employees. All other public and private sector employers may use the system voluntarily.

Our electronic E-Verify solution electronically queries DHS and SSA databases to verify new employees’ U.S. work eligibility. This query includes verification that your candidate’s name and SSN match in the SSA database. In most cases, the results are returned to you instantly. Enhanced capabilities include email alerts and reports that help track and monitor tentative non-confirmations.

Benefits to our E-Verify solution:

  • Significantly reduce your potential risks of non-compliance which would result in exposure to financial penalties and consequent negative publicity. For employers who knowingly hire or knowingly continue to employ unauthorized workers, civil penalties range from $250 to $11,000 per violation. For employers engaging in a pattern or practice of knowingly hiring or continuing to employ unauthorized workers, criminal penalties can be a much as $3,000 per unauthorized employee and/or 6 months imprisonment.
  • Help ensure workforce stability and assist in eliminating the potential for disruptive and costly turnover created by the mandatory removal of legally unauthorized employees.
  • Minimize the potential for attracting legally unauthorized candidates by acknowledging your participation in E-Verify.
  • Seamlessly integrates with Hire Level’s existing ordering system.

If utilized in conjunction with our Electronic I-9 service, employee biographical information will be pre-populated on E-Verify form to reduce data entry.

Our 6-Factor Quality Commitment™

  • Hire Level begins by manually reviewing each and every order that we receive before we begin further research.  This simple but crucial step removes the instances of many data entry errors such as name order errors, misspellings, date or year of birth errors, etc.  If we are not sure, we will contact you immediately to verify that we have the correct information.  We want to get it right the first time – no sense in researching data that may be inaccurate or incomplete!
  • The next step is to then compare the provided information to an instant SSN Trace report.  This critical report reveals all names and aliases associated with your candidate’s SSN.  This again allows us to verify that the data you have provided us is indeed accurate.  The SSN Trace also provides a residence history that is invaluable in uncovering where your candidate has lived.  This is a fundamental building block in conducting a thorough criminal history search.
  • When database searches are requested by the client, we inspect the results thoroughly.  This allows us to determine which records belong to your candidate – and remove the ones that don’t.  It also signals where we should do some further research – including adding any locations or residences that the candidate may have conveniently forgotten to mention.
  • All possible database records are confirmed at the primary source of information before we release it to you.  That ensures that the information you are receiving is accurate, up-to-date, compliant, and actually belongs to your candidate.
  • All of our verifications are performed in-house.  We do not outsource this critical task or off-shore any confidential candidate data.
  • Before your results are delivered, they go through a 2-step quality control process.  All hits are reviewed by a records supervisor for accuracy, clarity and compliance with federal and state laws.
