Employment Verification: Using the Right Resources to Ensure Compliance
Alex Sanchez, Manager of Employment Compliance
That’s why we are doing the following:
Two decades ago we became one of the first major employers to voluntarily participate in a federal program now known as E-Verify, which helps participating businesses electronically verify the employment eligibility of new hires.
We added a second layer of wage verification through our voluntary participation in the Social Security Number Verification Service
In 2011, Tyson Foods became the first major food company to become a member of the federal government’s IMAGE program. It enables businesses, if they meet rigorous standards, to partner with the federal government to make sure they’re employing people authorized to work in the U.S.
In addition to government tools, we train all of our hiring managers on employment documentation procedures and work to increase their awareness of identification fraud.
We regularly audit employment documents, as well as our hiring process and also use an independent, outside company, which conducts its own audit of our hiring practices. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made and, as part of our continuous improvement journey, we’ll continue to look for additional ways to ensure we remain on the leading edge of the employment eligibility process.
