To request a customized E-Verify webinar, please email E-VerifyOutreach@uscis.dhs.gov.
E-Verify is a free Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States and ensure a legal workforce. The customized webinars can be used to provide an E-Verify refresher to Human Resources staff. Training specialists are available to provide webinars tailored to specific needs of employers:
- Choose a convenient date and time. Webinars are available between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM ET.
- Pick the subject that is needed most. Webinars are available on subjects besides E-Verify including Form I-9, E-Verify Self Check, Employee Rights, and Federal Contractor topics.
- Get to the point or take as much time as needed. Presentation times range from 30 to 60 minutes in duration.
- Training is interactive. Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to engage with trainers and get their questions answered.
- Hablamos Español. Spanish speaking presenters are also available.
According to the USCIS, E-Verify is currently used nationwide by more than 500,000 employers of all sizes at more than 1.4 million hiring sites.
