ALPHARETTA, GA and PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2013) - First Advantage, a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company and the leading global provider of screening analytics and identity solutions, today announced its partnership with LawLogix, the leader in I-9 and E-Verify compliance. Through this strategic collaboration, First Advantage will bundle LawLogix' Guardian electronic I-9 software with its existing compliance products to provide clients with a fully integrated service encompassing applicant tracking, background screening, I-9 and E-Verify.
The U.S. Federal Government requires all employers to verify the identity and work authorization of their new employees via the Form I-9. In some states, this data must also be communicated to E-Verify, an internet-based system that enables employers to determine the employment eligibility of their employees. The Guardian software is a leading electronic I-9 solution that fully automates the completion of the Form I-9 and integrates seamlessly with E-Verify, while reducing errors, increasing efficiency and improving records management. The combined product is offered as a standalone solution or as a fully integrated solution in First Advantage's comprehensive suite of solutions.
