One of Gov. Rick Scott’s first moves after taking office in January was to require all state agencies and contractors to use the federal government’s E-Verify online employment eligibility verification system for all its new hires.

The web-based system confirms a worker’s legal status to work in the United States by comparing information from the employee’s I-9 form to other data—such as Social Security numbers—that are already in government databases. Scott’s move makes Florida the 14th state to adopt E-Verify for public employees, contractors or both.

Private-sector employees do not have to use the system, although they may. For more information, see U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service’s web site at www.uscis.gov/E-Verify.
