An E-Verify Designated Agent is a liaison between E-Verify and employers who choose to outsource submission of employment eligibility verification queries for newly hired employees. E-Verify Designated Agents conduct the verification process for other employers or clients.

You can utilize an E-Verify Designated Agent, such as Commercial Investigations LLC, to assist in managing your Electronic I-9s and conduct your E-Verify inquiries.
