E-Verify: Employment Eligibility Verification Webinar for Public Librarians
USCIS-IMLS webinar scheduled for June 2
Washington, DC—The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will offer the third in a series of free webinars for public librarians about immigration and U.S. citizenship topics.
The webinar, E-Verify: Employment Eligibility Verification Resources for Employers, Workers and Job Seekers, will explore E-Verify, the federal government’s no-cost web-based service that enables employers to verify new hires’ employment eligibility. The presentation will also include an overview of Form I-9, the Employee Rights Toolkit, Self Check, and other USCIS resources. Familiarity with these resources can be vital for public librarians to assist library customers with employment eligibility verification information.
It is not necessary to have participated in previous USCIS-IMLS webinars to participate in this session.
