Note: This article is about a product that is specific to employers hiring in the United States.
In this Cisive Product Highlight series, we’ll review key tools to consider when screening your workforce, as well as top benefits and features when ordering them through Cisive and our family of brands.
This month’s highlight is I-9/E-Verify, which is how employers can determine whether job candidates are eligible to work in the United States.
This form was originally created in 1986 by the Immigration and Naturalization Service. The Form I-9 serves to bolster efforts to enforce immigration laws in the workplace and to ensure the employ of a legal workforce in the United States.
Federal law requires all employers who hire job candidates in the United States to complete a Form I-9, whether the candidate is a citizen or not. It contains three sections, one completed by the employee and two completed by the employer:
E-Verify is an electronic system used to determine employment eligibility in the United States. It is operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), specifically U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. It is not federally required; however, as of February 2023, half of the states in the U.S. mandate that employers run an E-Verify check in at least some circumstances, along with employers with federal contracts/subcontracts that include the Federal Acquisition Regulation E-Verify Clause.
Ordering on Cisive’s Platform
Cisive’s Electronic I-9/E-Verify Solution allows you to control the timing of I-9 completion. The form can be initiated at several key stages of your onboarding process, including:
The new employee will receive an email notification inviting them to log onto the Cisive Onboarding Portal and complete & electronically sign Section 1 of the I-9 form. The employer will then be directed to complete Section 2, and Section 3 (if needed).
Cisive transmits the Form I-9 to the E-Verify website on your behalf.
Within 3-5 minutes, results return as either “Employment Authorized” or “Employment Not Authorized.”
Stay tuned for some exciting updates to Cisive’s E-Verify platform this fall, including a modernized Form I-9 experience.
