February DVP Requirements Corner

DTS-Phone7.jpgDo you ever have a question regarding what is required by DVP?  Every month DVP features common questions DVP received from funded programs and our response.

Question: A client in our shelter was trying to move to another city in Colorado and was calling other shelters looking for space. The advocate at the other shelter was requiring the client to sign a release of information with our organization so that we could talk about the client with the staff at the other shelter prior to admitting them. Is this allowed? 

E-Verify Resumes Operation

E-Verify is a web-based system that allows enrolled employers to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. E-Verify employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of newly hired employees by electronically matching information provided by employees on the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, against records available to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
