Isn’t It Tim​e for a Fully Electronic Employment Verification System?

Employers Need an Accu​rate, Easy-to-Use Modern System

  • The New P​aper I-9 Cannot Stop Identity Fraud:
    Yesterday, a new version of Form I-9 – the required form that all employers must fill out to verify the work authorization of each new hire – became mandatory. Employers will spend many hours understanding and integrating the new form into their onboarding procedures. While the new Form I-9collects some additional information, it does not solve the fundamental problem of identity authentication.

  • ​​Even Employers Enrolled in E-Verify​ Must Complete the Paper I-9:
    It is time we eliminate the multi-step employment verification process and move to one easy-to-use fully electronic system.


With comprehensive immigration reform proposing mandatory verification, isn’t it time for a fully integrated electronic employment verification system that keeps pace with modern business p​ractices? ​
