HireRight Releases Key Enhancements To I-9 Solution

Employment Eligibility Solution Gives Employers Big Picture View, Integration into Talent Management Solutions and an Easy Way to Maintain Compliance

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 18, 2008--In response to increasing enforcement, audits and penalties relating to I-9 employment eligibility by U.S. government agencies, HireRight, Inc. (Nasdaq: HIRE), a leader in on-demand employment screening, has announced a newly enhanced edition of the HireRight I-9 Solution, the on-demand product first introduced in 2007. The new version of the HireRight I-9 Solution addresses employers' need for greater visibility, control and flexibility over I-9 processes, across the enterprise, as government regulations and penalties related to employment eligibility stiffen.

According to Eric Boden, chairman and chief executive officer of HireRight, "The laws and requirements related to employment eligibility are rapidly changing. The HireRight I-9 Solution helps employers manage these shifting compliance requirements and the multitude of variables that exist in operating an effective I-9 program today."

The HireRight I-9 Solution is designed to replace the traditional, paper- and labor-intensive, error-prone I-9 process with an automated, secure, efficient, and scalable on-demand management solution. It not only manages I-9 records and documentation as required by law, it also automates and integrates instant employment eligibility verification through the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) E-Verify program. The new version expands the HireRight I-9 Solution's already extensive capabilities with the following additional new features:

  • Management Reports: An enhanced suite of management reports that give the employer greater visibility into the entire employment eligibility program, helping to ensure all employees have completed up-to-date I-9 forms and are compliant with employment eligibility regulations.
  • Employee Kiosk: A solution access capability that allows new and existing employees without e-mail addresses to log-on from anywhere and self-register to complete their I-9 forms.
  • E-mail Alerts: Advanced e-mail alerts that provide notifications when I-9 forms are completed, when I-9 forms have not been completed by day three, and when re-verification is required for expiring work authorizations.
  • Document Upload: Scan and upload capability to permit historical paper I-9 forms and supporting documentation to be easily loaded into the system.
  • Smart Delete: An integrated solution feature which determines which I-9 forms, and supporting documentation, have met federal retention guidelines and may be deleted.
  • HR System Integration: Integration with talent management solutions to allow hiring professionals to perform all of their required tasks easily from a single screen.

As an option, the HireRight I-9 Solution can be implemented in an integrated fashion with HireRight's employment background screening solution.

HireRight is an approved designated agent of the DHS E-Verify Program. For more information regarding the HireRight I-9 Solution, go to: www.hireright.com/I9.
