Wisconsin Become Seventh State To Join E-Verify RIDE Program
On November 15, 2015, Wisconsin became the seventh state to participate in the Records and Information from DMV's for E-Verify (RIDE) program. Driver's licenses and ID cards account for nearly 80% of the documents used as proof of identity by employees for E-Verify.
The Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) initiative is an enhancement to the E-Verify program that verifies the validity of driver's license and ID card information by matching the data entered by employers against participating state motor vehicle department records.
RIDE enables two-part verification by validating the information on select identity documents in addition to the existing employment authorization check.
