USACM Urges Congress to Build in Safeguards for Automated Employment Checks
At a recent Congressional hearing on employment verification systems and their impact on the Social Security Administration, Eugene H. Spafford, chair of ACM's US Public Policy Committee (USACM), cited several potential problems, some already evident, in a pilot system operated by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to electronically check on employee work eligibility. Spafford urged Congress to include sufficient safeguards to ensure that both employers and employees are adequately protected from technical failures and abuses of the system. Congress is considering several proposals to expand the DHS automated employment verification system, known as E-Verify, by mandating that every employer verify all new hires and existing employees using an expanded version. Currently, employers may use the existing E-Verify system to confirm work eligibility in the US against Federal databases.
