We are proud to be an E-Verified company!
What is the E-Verify program?
The E-Verify program is an Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA). The E-Verify program currently is the best means available for employers to determine employment eligibility of new hires and the validity of their Social Security Numbers.
Why do we use E-Verify?
We are a company that takes pride in following the law. As a student, you will potentially apply for H1B and Greencard in the future, and it is important for you to make sure that there are no issues with your legal standing at any point during your stay in the US. E-Verify allows us to ensure this, and helps a smooth transition of your immgration status in future. E-Verify is also mandatory for employers with federal contracts or subcontracts that contain the Federal Acquisition Regulation E-Verify clause, like us.
E-Verify electronically compares information contained on the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 with records contained in SSA and DHS databases to help employers verify identity and employment eligibility of newly-hired employees.
