Designating Hiring Sites

Designating Hiring Locations

Since E-Verify is mostly voluntary (except for federal contractors and employers in certain states), employers may choose the location(s), known by E-Verify as “Hiring Locations,” at which they will use the system to verify new hires. An employer with offices in multiple states, for example, may elect to only verify new hires in those states in which E-Verify enrollment is required by state law.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires that the employer expressly designate the location(s), by physical address, at which the employer will use E-Verify. Our signup form allows you to enter up to four hiring sites. If you have four or fewer hiring locations, you can close this page and continue enrollment.

If you plan to verify new hires at five or more hiring locations, you must first enter the addresses into a “comma-separated values” (CSV) spreadsheet file. (Download template). After creating the file, you should close this page to return to the signup form where you will upload the file.

 A "hiring location" is a location, controlled by the employer, at which new employees may be hired and/or complete Form I-9. A "hiring location" is not the same as a "job site," which is a location where employees may perform a service but is not controlled by the employer, like a client's workplace.

A remote hire's home address is not a "hiring location."

A residential address can be a "hiring location" if it is the legal address of a home-based business.

You can download a sample file to get you started or create your own CSV file. If you create your own, title the columns "Address Line 1", "Address Line 2", "City", "State" and "Zip Code". Enter the addresses under the headings, one address to a line.
