EEVS Made Easy
Released on Thu, Jun 05, 2008
Next week, the House Immigration Subcommittee will hold a hearing to discuss the challenges and problems of a mandatory, nation-wide, electronic employment verification system (EEVS).

This week, Immigration OnPoint highlights the many serious shortcomings of current federal and state legislative proposals to implement a mandatory EEVS for all employers.
