EBI's Screening News Network Blog

Have you ever compared your payroll data to your I-9 records? Would you have even thought to do such a thing?

Results must also be accurate to protect the organization making the decision. Ensuring accuracy, however, sometimes impacts the length of time needed to return results to our client – turnaround time.
