Even though the E-Verify process is voluntary for most employers, a growing number of organizations are embracing it because the process presents a number of benefits. The most notable is the reduced hiring risks that come with verifying employment eligibility.
When an HR department is overworked and understaffed, it’s all too common for it to fail in confirming the employment history and citizenship status of workers. That’s because confirming these is a time-consuming process, especially considering the long list of other employee onboarding tasks. Onboarding software that integrates with the E-Verify process will cut down on the time and tedium by automatically checking all points of concern regarding employment eligibility.
With an integrated E-Verify process, organizations don’t have to worry about overlooking a new hire’s verification — once the I-9 approval process is complete, the new hire may be launched into the E-Verify process immediately, with no redundant data entry. And HR can continue to use ExactHire’s onboarding software throughout the onboarding process to answer employment eligibility questions, generate reports for future reference, and to maximize accessibility to these records.
