U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services E-Verify Employer Online Search Tool Now Available
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched an E-Verify Employers Search Tool that allows one to find employers currently enrolled in E-Verify. The search tool allows filtering, sorting, and exporting employer results. It replaces the lists of E-Verify employers and federal contractors that previously appeared on the E-Verify Website. This is important information for students on Optional Practical Training (OPT) interested in applying for the 17-month STEM OPT Extension. To be eligible to apply for the STEM extension you must, among other criteria, have a degree in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) and you must have a job with an employer who participates in the E-Verify system.
