E-Verify is an internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA). The E-Verify system compares information from the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, with federal databases to confirm employment eligibility. E-Verify must be completed on the first day of work or within three (3) days of an employee’s start date.
- Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels signed immigration legislation (SEA590) into law on May 10, 2011 which requires Saint Mary-of-the-Woods to participate in the E-Verify program. To comply with the E-Verify law, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College must verify the identity and employment eligibility for all new employees hired at the College using information on the Form I-9.
- This includes all new faculty and staff, temporary, re-hires, and student employees.
- Employees must give their Social Security number on Form I-9. Providing the Social Security number had been voluntary.
