Boca Raton, FL – February 20, 2009 – Navicus, a leading provider of on-demand talent management solutions, today announced that it has formed an alliance with i9 Advantage, the pioneer of employment eligibility verification solutions that enable organizations to minimize Form I-9 risk. Under terms of the agreement, Navicus will now have a fully integrated E-Verify solution that enables the electronic processing of Form I9s and government compliance requirements.
The i9 Advantage solution enables businesses to electronically complete, sign and store the Form I-9. In addition, the solution provides real time validation of data entered into the Form I-9 and instant employment verification by sending the employee's data to E-Verify for employment verification. There is no software to install, so business can access their online account anywhere with an internet connection. The system stays current with the most recent Form I-9 and E-Verify updates, which greatly reduce exposure to government audits, financial penalties and negative publicity resulting from non-compliance.
The value proposition for Navicus clients is obvious, with the online completion of the Form I-9 and validation of the format of the identity document numbers provided, the tool allows clients to identify any issues before they are submitted to the federal government, saving them the time and hassle that comes with incomplete or inaccurate information in E-Verify. The new online solution helps detect illegal immigrants in the work place, which saves employers expenses from large fines, and the high cost of compliance without this resource. It also helps to reduce the time and cost of human resource departments, and bring greater accuracy to the results.
