Employer Verification (Immigration) Law and Legal Definition

Employer Verification is the procedure established by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). The IRCA requires U.S. employers to verify the identity and eligibility of individuals to legally work. For all individuals (U.S. citizens and aliens) hired or referred for a fee on or after November 7, 1986, form I-9 is used. [INA Section 274A, 8 USC Section 1324a.]
