U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director León Rodríguez has announced the launch of myE-Verify — a new website designed for employees.  myE-Verify is a one-stop shop for employees to create and maintain secure personal accounts and access new features for identity protection, according to USCIS.

“Since its inception, E-Verify has provided employees with valuable online tools and resources regarding the employment eligibility verification process,” said Rodríguez. “myE-Verify signifies a significant step forward for added transparency, features and identity protection.”

myE-Verify gives workers a free and secure way to participate in the E-Verify process by accessing features dedicated for employees, including Self Check and the Employee Rights Toolkit.  For added security, individuals will have their identities verified through Self Check, in order to create a myE-Verify account.

myE-Verify accounts and Self Lock will initially be accessible to individuals in five states — Arizona, Idaho, Colorado, Mississippi, Virginia — as well as the District of Columbia.  In future releases, USCIS will roll out myE-Verify across the country with plans for additional features focused on employees and job seekers.

Employers, keep your workforces aware of their rights and obligations under USCIS employment verification standards by posting our E-Verify Right-to-Work Notice Poster in a prominent place.
