Basically this kid worked for me part time. I was under the impression he was legal. Now I'm concerned he is not, and now he is milking L&I of washington state because he lied about suffering an injury at work 3 months after the fact. I have since gone out of business, but he used my name and business to file a claim and made a point of sending it to an innacurrate address so I would have no way of disputing it. He lied about how much he was getting paid, and he lied about the injury itself. I think he was coached on how to rip the system off. And because ssn aren't required to submit a claim in this state (an outrage to me) I don't even know if he's here legally. Any amunition I can leverage is what I'm looking for. I'm working with the state to nail this guy. I've just never known how to verify whether or not a person is legal or not because there doesn't appear to be a local immigration office I can call. HELP!

I understand. I asked if it was an employee because you need to be in some type of relationship with the person to ask for proof of legal status. without that, there is no way for you to find out unless the person or someone close to them tells you. This is private information. It's like wanting to know how much money someone has in the bank or a person's social security number, so without the authority to make him show his legal status or having an insider close to him to tell you this information, there is no database or public forum for you to find that information. I hope this helps clarify.
