Verifying Eligibility for Employment and Establishing Identity

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 requires every employer, regardless of size, to verify that an individual is authorized to be employed in the United States. You face civil and criminal penalties for knowingly hiring, referring, recruiting or continuing to employ individuals who are not authorized to work.​
