What the Law Says: Hiring Your Next Candidate

August 15, 2012

You've just hired the perfect candidate-or so you think.

Monster is proud to bring you a series of webinars related to E-Verify and its importance to the on-boarding process.
U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. This diverse workforce contributes greatly to the vibrancy and strength of our economy, but that same strength also attracts unauthorized employment.

E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. E-Verify is fast, free and easy to use – and it’s the best way employers can ensure a legal workforce. Listen and learn from the E-Verify subject matter experts at the Department of Homeland Security to help you determine if your candidate is a legal hire.

E-Verify is the only service that verifies employees' data against millions of government records and provides accurate results within seconds. There's no other program that provides the same peace of mind so quickly.

Join us and learn how to use this free tool.

E-Verify compares the information an employee provides on Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, against millions of government records and generally provides results in three to five seconds. If the information matches, that employee is eligible to work in the United States. If there's a mismatch, E-Verify will alert the employer and the employee will be allowed to work while he or she resolves the problem.

E-Verify works by comparing information entered from an employee's Form I-9 to:

  • 455 million Social Security Administration (SSA) records
  • 80 million U.S. Department of Homeland Security records

U.S. Department of Homeland Security databases contain records about employment-based visas, immigration and naturalization status, and U.S. passport issuance, which allow E-Verify to compare information against a wide variety of sources.

What you will learn:

  • How to use E-Verify
  • Results received from the E-Verify system and what they mean
  • What you should do if your candidate is a mismatch to E-Verify records

Monster would like to thank Dave Basham for presenting this webinar.
