Use of E-Verify skyrocketing, report says

This E-Verify thing seems to be catching on.

Over 50% of employers indicated they use E-Verify now, according to a recent report from international employment screening provider HireRight.

That percentage is up significantly from the 28% who reported using it in the same report in 2010.

Other findings in the 2011 report include:

  • 11% of those surveyed reported that although they are not currently using E-Verify, they plan to use it in the future.
  • 60% of respondents store Form I-9s exclusively in paper form, 12% digitally store, and 27% use a combination of both.
  • 69% of respondents reported feeling completely or very prepared for a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Notice of Inspection or audit.
