E-Verify was recently upgraded to include a driverâ€™s license verification feature. This is significant because driverâ€™s licenses are presented by more than 80% of new hires to establish their identity during the employment eligibility verification process.
Mississippi is the first state to partner with the Department of Homeland Security to make driverâ€™s license data available to be checked through E-Verify. E-Verify has an extremely high accuracy rate, and this anti-fraud enhancement makes the system even more reliable. In addition, E-Verify has recently added user-focused enhancements, including more help functions and streamlined enrollment.
