FAQs / 2. What is E-Verify?

E-Verify compares the information on the I-9 form to records available within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration. This electronic verification confirms the employee’s identity as well as the person’s eligibility to work in the United States. On November 14, 2008, the Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense Acquisition Regulations Council issued a final rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). The regulation requires contractors with a federal contract that contains a FAR E-Verify clause (FAR 52.222-54) to use E-Verify.
