Abstract This document summarizes the major findings and recommendations from the report, Evaluation of the Accuracy of E-Verify Findings. This report builds on previous evaluations of the E-Verify Program, which electronically verifies the employment-authorization status of new hires and certain other employees of participating employers.1 The Basic Pilot Program, now referred to as E-Verify, was originally authorized under the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA). Its authorization has been extended several times since then and the Program has been expanded in scope and modified considerably based, in part, on earlier evaluation report findings which are available on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website. The E-Verify legislation specified that the goal of the Program is to reduce unauthorized employment without undue burden on employers or contributing to discrimination. The last independent evaluation documented that E-Verify appears to be effective in reducing unauthorized employment with only minimal burden on most employers and almost always finds employment-authorized workers to be employment authorized. The report also documented that the accuracy of E-Verify for employment-authorized workers has been increasing over time.
