  • Employers are required to both verify the identity of their employees and confirm that the employees are authorized to work in the US. In order to do so, employers and employees are required to complete an Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 (Form I-9). See Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.
  • Employers participating in E-Verify should be well informed about the verification process. See E-Verify Process.
  • There are a variety of visas depending upon an individual's profession, experience, nationality and whether the individual intends to reside in the US temporarily or permanently. See Employing Non-US Citizens.
