Bothell, WA (PRWEB) July 26, 2011
TalentWise, a leading Hiring Process Management (HPM) solutions provider, today announced a fully compliant and automated Employment Eligibility Verification solution that streamlines the completion of the Form I-9, verifies candidates’ employment eligibility, and securely stores completed Form I-9s. The paperless solution integrates directly with the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) E-Verify system, reducing cost and eliminating the potential for human error.
“The ever-changing employment eligibility landscape makes it time consuming and confusing for HR professionals to navigate the nuances in state and federal laws. TalentWise’s Employment Eligibility Verification solution helps ensure that organizations, both large and small, maintain consistent and compliant hiring processes, , while driving down the cost and removing the hassle of manually managing paper Form I-9s,” remarked Todd Owens, Chief Operating Office of TalentWise.
Organizations that are not compliant with employment eligibility verification laws can incur serious penalties, including civil fines, criminal punishment, or debarment from government contracts. In recent years, enforcement efforts by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency have dramatically increased. The number of ICE worksite inspections doubled from 1,191 in 2008 to 2,746 in 2010. Fines issued by the agency have skyrocketed from $675,209 to almost $7,000,000 in the same time frame.
