The New E-Verify -- Ready or Not, Things Have Changed

The New E-Verify -- Ready or Not, Things Have Changed

Dawn Lurie and Lindsey Baldwin, on behalf of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, wrote an Immigration Compliance Alert on changes to the E-Verify employment-eligibility system. These changes by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services need to be known by employers, and employees need to be trained to deal with them. They write:

"On Sunday, June 13th, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) rolled out what it claimed to be a newly-designed, improved and user-friendly E-Verify, continuing its promotion and marketing of the E-Verify system with its announcement of a system-wide redesign. The GT compliance team agrees that the look and feel of E-Verify has substantially improved with this update, along with the number of tools now available to employers to track alerts and close cases."

"The new E-Verify website is designed to enhance usability and security. Existing user names and passwords will remain valid, but registered users will be required to view a short 10 to 20 minute tutorial on the new redesign the first time they log in after the update. Users will not be able to perform queries until they complete the tutorial, so it is essential to plan accordingly."

"The redesign team determined that the vast majority of E-Verify cases can be accomplished in a quick and easy three-step process. The redesign reflects this by dividing the E-Verify process into three segments: entering information from Form I-9, receiving verification results, and closing the case. A video demonstration of the 1-2-3 process is available on the USCIS website."
