E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.

As of November 30, 2012, a total of twenty states require the use of E-Verify for at least some public and/or private employers: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Patrick Payroll helps employers automate the E-Verify process using our onboarding solutions, helping reduce your exposure to audits and penalties from I-9 violations. Employees can complete I-9 forms online with Electronic Signature Verification (ESV) and you can securely store completed I-9 forms in our onboarding software.
