USA - Employment Eligibility Verification

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) today released the results of their survey of thousands of their members that finds 76 percent saying that using an electronic employment eligibility verification system would be a "minimal burden" or "not a burden." The most important provision of the House-passed immigration and border security legislation (H.R. 4437) addresses the job magnet that lures immigrants to the U.S. illegally. The House bill makes mandatory a system currently voluntary that allows employers to verify whether an employee is legally eligible to work. Critics of this provision have asserted that this system would hit small businesses the hardest.
