GBC Services LLC is an authorized E-Verify Employer Agent. Why should you use us for E-Verification?
As part of our human resources and payroll management packages, we will take care of required immigration e-verification for your company. Both large and small businesses use E-Verify employer agents for many reasons as part of HRMS. GBC Services LLC is fully licensed to do this task.
U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. This diverse workforce contributes greatly to the vibrancy and strength of our economy, but that same strength also attracts unauthorized employment.
E-Verify is an Internet-based system run by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in partnership with Social Security Administration and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. According to the DHS website, more than 404,295 employers now use E-Verify. Over 1,400 companies enroll in the program every week. E-Verify is the best way employers can ensure a legal workforce.
Not every state requires the use of e-verification, but the state of Georgia requires both public and private employers to use E-Verify during the hiring process (save for employers with fewer than 10 employees). Let us handle this for your small business along with your payroll and human resources management, and easily avoid trouble and hassles that could ensue.
What is an E-Verify Employer Agent?
E-Verify employer agents, formerly called designated agents, use E-Verify to confirm the employment eligibility of another company’s employees. E-Verify employer agents may also handle payroll and other administrative tasks that include managing the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) process. It’s a typical part of a Human Resource Management and Payroll Service.
Companies or small businesses that are mandated, (or who choose, in some states), to participate in E-Verify have the option to have a E-Verify employer agent use E-Verify on their behalves. Companies big and small use E-Verify employer agents for many reasons, including:
- They do not have the equipment, such as a computer or Internet access, to use E-Verify themselves.
- They do not have the staff or the time to use E-Verify.
- They outsource their Form I-9 process or use an employment verification service that also offers E-Verify.
So, basically, the point of the e-verification program is to get employers to submit information taken from a new hire’s Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification Form) and run it through E-Verify to the Social Security Administration and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in order to determine whether the information matches government records and whether the new hire is authorized to work in the United States.
