Stanford Medicine - Health Care Participates in E-Verify

E-Verify is an internet-based system that compares information from your Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to records available to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) to confirm that you are authorized to work in the United States. Once you accept an offer of employment and complete Form I-9, the employer takes the information from your Form I-9 and enters it into E-Verify. E-Verify compares your information against records available to DHS and SSA and provides the employer with a case result within 3 to 5 seconds.
