E-Verify Participants: 'Right to Work' Poster Updated

Updated Poster Available for Download

An updated "Right to Work" poster is now available for employers and certain federal or state contractors who participate in the federal E-Verify program.

About E-Verify
U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States--either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Use of E-Verify is mandatory for certain federal contractors. Additionally, some private employers and state contractors may be required by state law to use E-Verify (e.g., certain employers in AL, AZ, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, TN, and UT). Click here and scroll to page 7 for a map of states with E-Verify requirements concerning private employers and/or state contractors.

"Right to Work" and "E-Verify Participation" posters must be displayed in English and Spanish by participating E-Verify employers/contractors to inform their current and prospective employees of their legal rights and protections.

Updated 'Right to Work' Poster
The "Right to Work" poster has been updated to reflect an agency name change--as of January 18, 2017, the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices has been renamed the Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER).

In order for employees, applicants, and the public to have the most recent and complete information regarding E-Verify, employers should replace previous versions of their posters with the most recent versions as soon as practicable. The latest versions of the "E-Verify Participation" and the IER "Right to Work" posters are available here.

More information regarding E-Verify is available from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
