LAKEVILLE, MN – February 17, 2009 – Verified Credentials, Inc., the leader in background screening since 1984, announced today the nationwide availability of their web-based Electronic I-9 Verification solution, enabling employers to verify the work eligibility of newly hired employees through the U.S. government’s E-Verify system.
E-Verify is an online system that provides access to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) databases to registered participants. As a Certified Designated Agent for E-Verify, Verified Credentials can now submit queries to DHS and SSA government databases and compare the information with an employee’s I-9 form, including Social Security number, work visa authorization, I-94 arrival and departure numbers, and immigration “A” number.
Verified Credentials’ new Electronic I-9 Verification provides employers with an easier, more efficient way to electronically administer post-hire employment eligibility verifications within Verified Credentials’ proprietary, web-based background screening solution.
Verified Credentials simplifies I-9 management for employers through:
— An easy, streamlined online submission process.
— Email notices and instructions when follow-up action is required by the employer.
— Paperless storage of results and communications.
— Real-time status updates for fast turnaround.
