Term Definition
Employers can use E-Verify to confirm that their employees are legally able to work in the United States.

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 against forged identification documents.
