Dedicated to Hiring Legal Employees/E-Verify Compliance

Ray’s Tree and Lawn Care was founded on the values of reliability, trust, experience, service, quality and affordability.  This means we do what we say we’re going to do and we do it right.  That standard of care applies to our hiring as well.  We make a serious commitment to follow the law and hire only legal workers to service your trees.  Unfortunately for consumers, not all landscape and tree companies abide by these same high standards.  Far too many companies today hire illegal workers and pay cash because it’s often cheaper and it allows companies to avoid paying some local, state and federal taxes.

U.S. law requires companies to employ only those who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. To ensure all of our employees qualify as legal workers, we use a government-run verification system called E-Verify.  E-Verify is a web-based system that allows businesses like Ray’s to voluntarily check and make sure an employee is legal to work in the United States.  We verify every new employee to ensure they are authorized to work in this country, and we also conduct background checks.

Why is this important to you?  If you hire a company that hires illegal workers, you could be putting yourself at risk.  Hiring illegal workers is a criminal offense.  We’re proud of our licensed, professional and legal workforce, so you can feel safe and secure when you hire Ray’s.  As part of your due diligence when looking for a tree or landscaping company, make sure the company hires a legal workforce.
