Baltimore County Passes Recommendation for E Verify story below

The County Council enacted a resolution Monday, by a unanimous vote of the six members that were present. The resolution urges County Executive James T. Smith Jr. to ensure contractors vet new hires with the federal E-Verify program. The free, online system, operated by the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration, allows an employer to compare details from a new hire’s employment eligibility form with information from more than 500 million federal records.
