Today U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services rolled out an updated website for E-Verify.
E-Verify is a web-based system that allows enrolled employers to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. E-Verify employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of newly hired employees by electronically matching information provided by employees on the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, against records available to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Monitoring and Compliance (M&C) enforcement actions have increased since FY2014, when total compliance activity was 87,934 actions. This number was the total number of Compliance Actions (e.g., emails, telephone calls, desk reviews and site visits) by M&C as well as Interagency Actions. The same Compliance Activities for FY2017 stood at 130,006. The role of M&C is to protect E-Verify against system misuse through monitoring and compliance activities, such as identifying and resolving compliance issues, notifying employers of noncompliant behaviors, and offering compliance assistance in the form of emails, phone calls, desk reviews, and site visits.
