Background

E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows an employer, using information reported on an employee's Form I-9, to determine the eligibility of that employee to work in the United States. RIDE is an enhancement to the E-Verify program that verifies the validity of driver's license and ID card information by matching the data entered by employers against participating state motor vehicle department records. RIDE enables two-part verification by validating the information on select identity documents in addition to the existing employment authorization check.

Note: While participation in E-Verify is voluntary for most businesses, some companies may be required by state law (or federal regulation) to use E-Verify. Employers should check with their state labor departments for applicable requirements.
