Question by Ajo: What is the best way for a small business to verify that its ethnic employees are legal workers?
I have tried some sites on the internet, but unfortunately the ones that I have seen only verify that a social security number is authentic. They don’t actually tell you who the social security number belongs to… (In other words, I need to know if the social security numbers are actually there own)
I am open to any suggestions. :0)

First,check for an ID.Check if it has those seals so you can see if it’s real.Check for expiration date and all that.If it looks legit,check also the SS card.It should have a watermark on it.And check if the SS card matches the name on the ID and all.Most of the time,you must have a SSN card to get an ID,so if the ID looks legit,it’s even better.
Tha watermark on the SSN card has an orange circle,last time I checked.
Another thing,try a local agency that does background checks.They might have a special package for a small business like yours.
P.S.: You shouldn’t just run a background check on a particular ethnic group.If you run a background check on one person,you should do with everybody.Americans can have a fake social.Who knows they were a felon and don’t want to admit it?
If a legal person of another ethnic group finds out you did a check on them and not in an American person,you can be sued for discrimination and violating Equal Opportunity laws.
