E-Verify System for Employment Eligibility Verification
The City of Apache Junction will provide the Social Security (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with information from each new employee's Form I-9 to confirm work authorization.
Important: If the Government cannot confirm that you are authorized to work, we are required to provide you written instructions and an opportunity to contact SSA and/or DHS before taking adverse action against you, including terminating your employment. Employers may not use E-Verify to pre-screen job applicants or to re-verify current employees and may not limit or influence the choice of documents presented for use on Form I-9. In order to determine whether Form I-9 documentation is valid, we use E-Verify's photo screening tool to match the photograph appearing on some permanent resident and employment authorization cards with the official U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' (USCIS) photograph.
If you believe that The City of Apache Junction has violated its responsibilities under this new program or has discriminated against you during the verification process based upon your national origin or citizenship status, please call the Office of Special Counsel at (800) 255-7688 (TDD: (800) 237-2515).
Notice: Federal law requires all employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States. For more on E-Verify, please contact DHS at (888) 464-4218.
