USCIS offers free live webinars on topics relating to the E-Verify program, including information on how to maintain a legal workforce, Form I-9, and employment eligibility. E-Verify allows participating employers to verify employment eligibility of workers by comparing the data provided on the Form I-9 against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) databases.
