LaserCard Corporation Helps Employers Resolve Critical Problem of Employment Eligibility
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 23 - LaserCard Corporation (NASDAQ:LCRD), a leading supplier of secure ID credentials used in biometric identification, today announced the introduction of its "Green Card Authenticator," the ultimate support to employers, law enforcement, and state and federal agencies seeking to authenticate the U.S. Permanent Resident Card, commonly referred to as the "Green Card."
The Green Card is probably the most famous - and most sought after - identity card in the world. It confirms the holder's right to permanently reside and work in the United States. LaserCard Corporation is proud to be the manufacturer of this highly-counterfeit resistant card which includes some of the most sophisticated overt and covert security features available today.
The Green Card Authenticator provides three levels of assurance. The first is to confirm or question the authenticity of the card; the second is to verify whether an authentic card is still valid; and the third is to read and display on a standard PC screen the facial image, name, gender, date of birth, and nationality of the legitimate cardholder. A printed record of the results is automatically generated for future reference if required.
"Following the recent demise of immigration reform legislation, Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff expressed regret that DHS would not receive additional funding to support employers in their need to verify the right of prospective employees to work in the United States," said Richard Haddock, President & CEO, of LaserCard. "With DHS becoming much more proactive in worksite raids and enforcement, honest and diligent employers across the U.S. are looking for a means to verify the employability of foreign job applicants. LaserCard Corporation is pleased to be able to contribute to these efforts by providing employers and government agencies with authentication technology for U.S. Permanent Resident Cards," added Mr. Haddock.
