E-Verify Extended Definition
E-Verify is a federal database run by the Department of Homeland Security. Within three days of starting a new job, employees must fill out Form I-9. The employer will then use the information on Form I-9 to run an E-Verify report. E-Verify helps combat forged identification documents.
