July 1, 2013 marks the last effective date in NC’s E-Verify legislation. All employers with 25 or more employees will be required to use E-Verify to check work authorization for all new hires.
What is E-Verify?
E-Verify is a federal, internet-based program which validates that an individual is authorized to work in the United States. An employer inputs information from the new hire’s I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification Form) and E-Verify compares the information with government records. E-Verify is instant and free.
