The onboarding process is often a time-consuming step in the new hire journey. The sheer amount of paperwork required by a company for a new hire to work can bog down the first day of a new job, and it can slow down the ramp up time of getting that employee on the floor and productive. Yet, it is critical, and some of the needed paperwork and authorization, such the I-9 form and E-Verify process, have to be done in a timely manner in order to stay compliant with the Federal government.
I-9 compliance is especially challenging for companies with multiple hiring locations, diverse workforces, and temporary foreign workers. In the service industry where many of the hiring managers are doing the hiring and onboarding this can be especially challenging as the managers are not trained HR professionals that have to deal with the process on a regular basis.
I-9 violations can cost companies thousands of dollars a year in fees. That is why an electronic I-9 and E-Verify integration is an important feature in an end-to-end talent management solution. Without it, I-9 completion and workers’ authorization verification is at risk during an I-9 audit. With an electronic system in place, companies can have peace of mind that their employees are authorized to work in the U.S.
Benefits of an Electronic I-9 with E-Verify Integration include:
- Comprehensive online completion, e-signature and storage of all I-9s
- Automated expiration, re-verification and receipt reminders
- No waiting — instantaneous E-Verify results
- Elimination of the re-keying of Form I-9 data into the government’s E-Verify system
- Complete audit trail of all user activity on the system
