Owings Mills, MD (PRWEB) May 9, 2006
Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) and Form I-9 Compliance, LLC recently announced their strategic agreement to provide electronic Form I-9 processing, automated right to work verifications, secure online storage and consulting services.
This process, integrated with EBI’s secure web-based background screening module, results in a completely paperless, efficient method of responding to the federal Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) and enables employers to easily conduct legal right to work Form I-9 employment verifications on new employees.
“Because the IRCA legally mandates that U.S. employers verify the employment eligibility status of newly-hired employees and makes it unlawful for employers to knowingly hire or continue to employ unauthorized workers, we thought that it was imperative that our clients could complete the employment process with ease, with one-process, and no duplicate data entry or excessive paperwork,” said Rick Kurland, President and CEO of EBI. "Since Form I-9 Compliance is the first federally-approved Designated Agent of the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration for Form I-9 employment verifications, our choice to partner with Form I-9 was crystal clear."
Kurland further explains, “Once our client completes the background check and hires the candidate, they simply select the employee from our secure website and instantly his/her information integrates with the Federal government’s Employment Verification Program (EVP) allowing employers to quickly and accurately verify new employees’ legal right to work. We are able to check Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) databases and provide a unique DHS-issued verification number. In addition to new employee verifications, we can now assist our clients identify current employees with mis-matched Social Security numbers through the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS)."
Ken Sekella, Vice President, Marketing for Form I-9 Compliance further states “With the passage of the IRCA, founders of Form I-9 Compliance worked closely with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to develop the original Form I-9 and they have been providing I-9 consulting services since.
