USCIS to Offer Free E-Verify Informational Seminars for Federal Contractors

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invites federal contractors and subcontractors affected by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause to attend a free E-Verify informational seminar on Feb. 23 or 24 at 2451 Crystal Drive, Arlington, Va.

Each two-hour seminar will include a demonstration of the E-Verify system, presentations concerning issues related to the employment verification process, and question and answer segments with government representatives.

The seminars are being offered twice each day from 10 a.m. until noon and again from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.

To register for a seminar, e-mail with your company name, telephone number, number of guests, and date and time of desired seminar.  Advance reservations are required; a registration confirmation will be provided.

More than 183,000 participating employers nationwide currently use E-Verify to electronically verify their workers’ employment eligibility.  Since Oct. 1, 2008, more than 3.9 million employment verification queries have been run through the system and about 97 percent of all queries are now automatically confirmed as work-authorized within 24 hours or less.

USCIS operates E-Verify in partnership with the Social Security Administration.  More information on the program is available on the E-Verify Web site at  E-Verify customer support is also available by calling toll free (888) 464-4218.
