Workers able to check work status online

Posted on March 25th, 2011 No Comments

A new program was introduced by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday that will allow prospective workers to go online and check their work status before applying for jobs.  The program, E-Verify Self Check, is currently only available in 5 states and the District of Columbia.  However, officials hope to have the program expanded to include all states within 12 months.

One of the many benefits of the program is that it should help to reduce workplace discrimination based off origin or work status.  Using the system, individuals enter identification information and then must confirm their identification by answering a series of questions.  Next, by entering work eligibility information like an Alien Registration number or Social Security number, users will receive results from federal databases concerning whether or not they are eligible to work in the United States.  Errors in eligibility may be corrected within 8 days.
