This employer participates in E-Verify and will provide the federal government with your Form I-9 information to confirm that you are authorized to work in the U.S. If E-Verify cannot confirm that you are authorized to work, this employer is required to give you written instructions and an opportunity to contact Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or Social Security Administration (SSA) so you can begin to resolve the issue before the employer can take any action against you, including terminating your employment. Employers can only use E-Verify once you have accepted a job offer and completed the Form I-9.
For more information on E-Verify, for a spanish version, or if you believe that your employer has violated its E-Verify responsibilities, please contact DHS. Call 888-897-7781 or visit dhs.gov/e-verify
If you have the skills, experience, and legal right to work, your citizenship or immigration status shouldn’t get in the way. Neither should the place you were born or another aspect of your national origin. A part of U.S. immigration laws protect legally-authorized workers from discrimination based on their citizenship status and national origin. You can read this law at 8U.S.C. & 1324b.
The Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) may be able to help if an employer treats you unfairly in violation of this law. For more information, call 1-800-255-7688, email IER@usdoj.gov or visit www.justice.gov/ier.
