Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2005 -
Â Form I-9 Compliance, LLC, the first federally-approved Designated Agent of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) for Form I-9 employment verifications, today announced that it has launched the first web-based service that enables employers to easily conduct legal right to work Form I-9 employment verifications on new employees.
With the passage of The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA), founders of Form I-9 Compliance worked closely with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to develop the original Form I-9 and have been providing I-9 consulting services since. In 2003, they began working on the patent pending service announced today. Form I-9 ComplianceÂs proprietary system and integration with the federal governmentÂs Employment Verification Program allows employers to quickly and accurately verify new employeesÂ legal right to work in the United States. Using specific information contained on the Form I-9, Form I-9 Compliance electronically verifies the accuracy of employeesÂ Social Security and Immigration ÂAÂ numbers through DHS and SSA databases and provides the employer with a DHS-issued unique verification number.
Form I-9 Compliance will provide its services directly to employers and through value-added resellers. InfoLink Screening Services, a national provider of employment background screening services, is the first company to begin offering its clients Form I-9 services ÂPowered by Form I-9 Compliance.Â These services include:
Â Automated legal Âright to workÂ verifications through the DHS and SSA. After spending time and money to recruit and hire new employees, companies can now take the final step and gain peace of mind that their employeesÂ Social Security and Immigration documents are valid.
Â A self-correcting web-based Form I-9 that virtually eliminates human errors in the document completion process. Most employers are not aware of the processing errors that are made in completing the Form I-9 and the exposure to government fines for noncompliance. Form I-9 ComplianceÂs electronic Form I-9 substantially decreases such errors and helps ensure companiesÂ compliance.
Â Electronic storage and retrieval of active and inactive I-9 Forms. Companies will benefit from the convenience and cost savings of 24/7 secure, paperless access to their I-9 Forms for updating, re-verification and governmental inspection as dictated by law.
Â Proactive, automated alerts 90, 60 and 30-days in advance of the expiration of employeesÂ work authorization documents. Automated notifications to employers will enable their employees to apply for renewal of their work authorizations and greatly increase the probability that they can legally continue to work without interruption.
Â Identification of current employees with fraudulent Social Security numbers. Through the SSAÂs Employee Verification Service, Form I-9 Compliance can help employers improve the accuracy of payroll and tax reporting and prevent SSA inquiries concerning unmatched Social Security accounts.
Â Professional consulting services performed by trained and experienced I-9 consultants, including former INS officials and executive-level Human Resources professionals. Form I-9 ComplianceÂs confidential consulting services include comprehensive audits of an employerÂs Form I-9 program and processes, error identification and corrective recommendations, Form I-9 administration training and more.
ÂForm I-9 Compliance helps companies increase the efficiency and validity of their Form I-9 verifications and processes,Â said John Hermann, President of Form I-9 Compliance, LLC. ÂOur services cost-effectively reduce exposure to government audits, financial penalties and negative publicity that can and does result when companies do not comply with IRCA.Â
Form I-9 Compliance will be exhibiting at the SHRM Conference and Exposition in San Diego, California on June 19th through 22nd. Please visit Booth #3551 for more information.
