Employees in D.C. & Virginia May “Self-Check” Employment Eligibility Through E-Verify

This week, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launched “E-Verify Self-Check,” which allows employees in select states, including Virginia and the District of Columbia, to check their employment eligibility status before seeking work. Potential employees may also correct errors that may undermine employment opportunities. According to the press release, Self-Check will be expanded to additional states on a rolling basis.
