Developing I-9 laws make the necessity of automation the rule and not the exception.

AUSTIN, Texas — deverus, the leader in background screening technology, has recently released one of the latest must-haves in the industry, I-9 verification automation. For those companies that want to stay in compliance with ever-changing laws and regulations, I-9 data verification automation is essential.

The passing of I-9 data verification laws in many of the states is one of the most significant developments in the background check and pre-employment screening industry in recent years. Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, and Oklahoma all have I-9 data verification laws. Georgia and Colorado are currently enforcing their I-9 laws, Oklahoma’s law began phasing in on November 1, 2007, and Arizona is the most recent state to pass an I-9 verification law which takes effect January 1, 2008. There is currently a voluntary federal law for I-9 verification. Many leaders in the industry see compliance with this law becoming mandatory in the coming years as more and more states take it upon themselves to enact similar laws. One of the biggest benefits of the I-9 verification for employers is that it ensures that the prospective employee complies with current federal employment and immigration laws by verifying that they are authorized to work in the U.S. For now, an I-9 may only be run after the prospective employee has accepted an offer of employment and has completed the I-9 form.

The I-9 data verification automation that deverus has developed can be integrated into their clients’ systems seamlessly. Because the I-9 verification forms can be lengthy and it is essential that they are filled out properly and in full, the I9 automation provides step-by-step processing, narrowing the margin of error. deverus has brought to the industry a feature that will make the evolving I-9 laws less of a hassle to the industry because their I-9 automation kit will make the authentication process quick and easy.

“I9 compliance is fast becoming one of the most important legislation shaping the screening industry today. In more and more states it’s becoming the law,” said Shawn Rucks, deverus’ CEO. “deverus has taken the lead by creating the most automated yet easy to use I9 compliance technology in the industry. Our clients once again are able to anticipate the needs of the market and offer one-of-a-kind solutions to keep pace with the dynamic changes taking place to keep legitimate, productive people in the workforce.”

This I-9 data automation is one of the many reasons deverus has become so successful in the background screening software industry. Without a doubt the laws concerning I-9 verification will be changing in the future as illegal immigrant workers becomes a highly debated issue in the coming presidential elections, and deverus has anticipated these changes by offering their clients a solution before there is a problem. Modifications and changes made to existing guidelines for I-9 verification should not be feared by the pre-employment screening industry, but embraced through technology such as deverus’ I9 automation.
