E-Verify Proposes Enhancements; Comment Period Ends Aug. 7


On June 8, 2015, E-Verify published a Federal Register notice seeking public comments on:

  • Three proposed enhancements:

o   Final Nonconfirmation (FNC) -- Allows employees to contest FNCs that they feel have been issued in error. A new process that allows the employees to request a review of their FNCs will replace the current manual review process.

o   Reverification -- Requires employers to use E-Verify to reverify employees whose work authorization has expired. These include employees who were hired before the employer signed the E-Verify Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

o   Updated MOUs -- Revisions have been made to the E-Verify MOUs to support the proposed business processes.

  • Streamlined Tentative Nonconfirmation (TNC) Processes

o   To provide employees with greater access to E-Verify information, USCIS has simplified the TNC process to streamline the notice that an employer provides to the employee. USCIS has also designed new email messages to communicate directly with the employee regarding Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security TNC notices.

The public will have 60 days to submit comments, until Aug. 7, 2015. Please follow the instructions in the Federal Register notice.
