Integrated I-9 and E-Verify

Built In and 100% Automated

It is estimated that 20-40% of all I-9s have one or more errors a costly mistake for employers if audited. Our background screening system has fully-integrated support for I-9 management and E-Verify.

Since I-9 is required for all employees, why not use our electronic version? It is a simple flip of the switch on our side and you are ready to start; no minimum order, no binding contract, no renewal fee and all part of the same system you use for your background checks!

Our electronic I-9 will save you time as well as money. It is estimated that 20-40% of all I-9s have one or more errors, a costly mistake for employers if audited. ICE is devoting more time and money into I-9 audits, so why not use an electronic I-9 system that will guide you through the process making sure that you supply the correct information and complete your I-9 forms within the requisite 3-days. The system will then create a compliant PDF I-9 form that you can store electronically or print and file.

In addition, if you have added our E-Verify product, the I-9 process captures all of the necessary information needed for E-Verify and will automatically submit it upon completion of the I-9. Seamless, efficient and time saving.


E-Verify may become a reality for all employers sooner rather than later. While E-Verify is currently a requirement for employers with Federal contracts, some states, like Tennessee, are ahead of the game and have added that requirement for all employers. If the new Accountability Through Electronic Verification Act, introduced by Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, passes it would permanently authorize the E- Verify program for all employers. It is designed to help businesses comply with immigration laws by certifying the legal status of their workforce.

E-Verify is an additional verification layer that will help employers maintain a legal workplace. It is a new offering for CIC’s clients. It is easy to use, and can be added to a background check with very little additional cost. Our new electronic I-9 option in tandem with E-Verify is the perfect way to make sure that your workforce is a legal workforce.

Our convenient, fully-automated screening system is available around the clock, and every order you place is monitored by our team of professional screening specialists for quality control, to ensure you get the most accurate information as quickly as possible.

You can call our offices during business hours to speak to a screening specialist. No call centers; no online ticket system. A member of our team will answer your call and provide direct support.
