Greenville Water uses E-Verify to electronically verify the employment eligibility of newly hired associates.

E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA). It is the best means available for determining employment eligibility of new hires and the validity of their Social Security Numbers.

The SC Illegal Immigration Reform Act requires Greenville Water to provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with information from each new employee’s Form I-9 in order to confirm work authorization.
