E-Verify Brought to Miami University

flag, e-verifyOn February 1, 2023 Miami University became an E-verify employer. E-Verify is used in conjunction with the I-9process to electronically confirm an applicant’s eligibility to work in the United States. All members of the HR and Academic Personnel teams are trained users of the system. No applicant can start work for Miami prior to completing the E-verify process.

The E-Verify program is operated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Information entered into the system is automatically shared with the U.S. Government to track compliance with immigration rules, regulations, and deadlines. Participation in E-Verify is a stipulation of many federally funded grants and programs which offers the university greater flexibility and greater transparency.

REMEMBER: The I-9 form must be completed ON or BEFORE starting to work at Miami University–there are No exceptions. Original documentation must be presented by the applicant in order to complete the I-9. Photos, photocopies, and images are not accepted. All student applicants will receive a work authorization notification from the HR office when they are approved to begin working. Staff receive an offer letter of employment. When communicating with applicants, please refer them to the complete list of acceptable documents to prove work eligibility. It is unlawful to request a specific item(s) from the list.
