SHRM CEO Testifies Before House Subcommittee on Social Security

HR Professionals Spearhead Effort in Support of "New Employee Verification Act"

ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The world's largest association devoted to human resource management today led a coalition of business leaders and HR professionals to endorse the "New Employee Verification Act." In testimony today before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security, Sue Meisinger, President and CEO of SHRM urged legislators to recognize that the current employment verification system is in need of real reform.

"It is time to go beyond E-Verify and to provide employers the option of enrolling in a more secure system," said Susan R. Meisinger, President and CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). "That is why we have endorsed the New Employee Verification Act (NEVA) as it offers a far superior alternative."

The House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security hearing addressed the current and proposed employment eligibility verification systems and their impact on the Social Security Administration. In her testimony, Meisinger urged members of this Subcommittee to resist efforts to mandate the use of the federal employment verification system known as "E-Verify."

"We believe employers are entitled to a quick, unambiguous, and accurate answer from the government to the query whether an employee is authorized to accept an offer of employment. Unfortunately, mandating E-Verify without change will not meet this need, and may make the challenges more difficult for reputable employers and legal employees."
