The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will publish its final rule requiring federal contractor participation in the internet-based system known as "E-Verify." E-Verify allows enrolled employers to electronically verify the eligibility of newly hired employees to work in the United States. E-Verify compares the identifying information provided by an employee to records contained in DHS and Social Security Administration (SSA) databases.
