E-Verify: Your Best Practice for a Legal Workforce


November 14, 2012

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.

  • Are you interested in finding out about how you can maintain a legal workforce?
  • Do you have questions about E-Verify and how it relates to the Form I-9?
  • Have you ever wondered about your own employment eligibility?

Here’s a great opportunity to learn about these topics from the E-Verify subject matter experts at the Department of Homeland Security.

E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their new hires 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 new hire is a legal hire.
