About the Program:

As of 2019, there are many states that require E-Verify to check all new hires for eligibility to work in the United States. .Florida is now one of them.

The state of Florida hires only U.S. citizens and lawfully authorized alien workers. All selected applicants are required to complete Section 1 of federal Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) and to provide identification and either proof of U.S. citizenship or proof of authorization to work in the U.S.

Special Agent VanDenberghe will discuss all the ins and outs of the process, timing, what is involved, etc. and answer your questions.
