nowHIRE is making it easier for companies to comply with the U.S. government's requirements
Detroit (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
Effective today, the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) E-Verify electronic employment verification system is required for many government contractors and subcontractors. As companies have expected the impending deadline, nowHIRE.com has seen an uptick in activity with their I-9 Comply™ System with optional E-Verify component. The system delivers a paperless I-9 compliance technology and real-time integration with the government's E-Verify system.
The U.S. government now requires federal contractors to enroll in E-Verify to confirm the identity and employment eligibility of both citizen and non-citizen workers in the United States. E-Verify® is an Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA).
"nowHIRE is making it easier for companies to comply with the U.S. government's requirements," said Joseph Impastato, founder and chief executive officer of nowHIRE. "Since we introduced the nowHIRE I-9 Comply System with the optional E-Verify component late last year, we have seen an increased interest and usage of our system, as companies increasingly understand the government's intent to move forward with E-Verify."
According to numbers released to the Center for Immigration Studies by the Department of Homeland Security, E-Verify is currently being used to determine work authorization for one in four new hires in the United States.
"Even prior to the government mandate taking effect, I would recommend the use of the E-Verify system as a best practice for verifying the identities of employees," said Clark Hill's Michael P. Nowlan. "I have found that electronic systems for verifying work authorization help minimize the errors that we see with I-9 forms and frequently help deal with the turnover in HR staff and management."
Nowlan is the co-leader of Clark Hill's Immigration Practice Group. Clark Hill is a full-service law firm. Nowlan's immigration practice includes representation of Fortune 500 companies, religious institutions, scientists and engineers, and other professionals and their families as they plan for U.S. entry. Nowlan reviewed the I-9 compliance regulations and the impact of E-Verify in a recent webinar, which can be accesses at http://nowhire.com/webcasts.html.
The federally approved nowHIRE I-9 Comply System with the optional E-Verify component is an intuitive Web application that enables employers to verify employee eligibility in seconds. Previously, I-9 compliance was a time-consuming and paper-heavy process. nowHIRE's I-9 Comply offers an automated, paperless and seamless document processing and storage system.
The E-Verify Program from nowHIRE is an optional integration with the federal government's E-Verify program and allows organizations to view and directly submit data to the federal E-Verify system. Organizations are able to see results immediately and take the necessary actions.
