Vetting Candidates with E-Verify

At Essential Personnel we believe in thoroughly vetting our candidates. A piece of our process is to E-Verify every employee we send to a client. The E-Verify process 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. The program was authorized by the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA).

Our procedure is to E-Verify all of our employees by electronically submitting information to determine whether the data matches government records and if the new hire is authorized to work in the United States. Employers who use E-Verify to determine employment eligibility enjoy a legal presumption that all steps are being taken to avoid hiring illegal workers. Using Essential Personnel and thusly E-Verify is very beneficial for companies with government contracts, you can be confident that our employees already meet this government contracting requirement.

This is just one of the multiple practices we use to benefit your company with an Essential Personnel partnership. We are dedicated to establishing a solid foundation of trust with clients, applicants and the business community.
