HEARING: Chairman Johnson Announces Hearing on the Social Security Administration’s Role in Verifying Employment Eligibility

April 14, 2011 — Hearing   

Focus Of The Hearing:
The hearing will focus on the progress made and challenges created by E-Verify, including the potential burdens on employees, employers and the SSA.  The Subcommittee will examine how the current shortcomings of the system could be improved to ease the verification process during this critical time of job creation.  Finally, the Subcommittee will also review other proposals to expand employment eligibility verification, including enhancing the Social Security card with tamper-proof, counterfeit-resistant or biometric features and increasing enforcement through the sharing of taxpayer wage information.
