Confirm Enrolled Employer Actually Uses E-Verify

The public USCIS E-Verify pages provide a report of employers using E-Verify. However, this report only shows that the employer is enrolled in E-Verify. It does not confirm that the employer actually uses E-Verify. There is also no way for a third-party such as a state to confirm the employer's E-Verify Company ID. It would be most helpful to include the employer's Company ID as well as the number of cases processed in ...more »

Test Manuals Posted on E-Verify Public Website

With the new approach to publishing E-Verify manuals on the public USCIS website, it is very important to fully test that the manuals, in total, properly export to PDF. The E-Verify manual recently posted the use of tabs in the manual presentation only exporting the first tab. This resulted in an incomplete manual that did not contain all of the information in the tabs after the first tab. It is important that all printing ...more »

Automate Entry and Update of Employer Locations in E-Verify

Provide an automated method for employer agents and individual employers to enter and update employer locations in E-Verify without any manual intervention. The current bulk upload method still requires a file of locations to be created for each employer and then manually submitted via the E-Verify employer or employer agent website. This approach is an unnecessary burden on large, decentralized employers and especially ...more »

E-Verify and Your Small Business

Log in

I want to suggest that “START HERE” should be located at the top Left or Right corner. I think it should be the FIRST thing they see when they open up the page.

E-Verify Website

Password Policy

Please deal with the moronic, script-kiddie password policy. Didn't we discover, years ago, that short passwords with goofy rules that have to be changed frequently reduces security? Hasn't there been enough research on that topic? For starters, for those of us who don't HAVE to use e-verify, the password policy is a frustrating, silly impediment to compliance. 14 characters is much too short, and your team ought ...more »

Case Reports

Add date of birth

Please consider adding a date of birth field to both case audit reports. This piece of data is required for entry, from Section 1, of the I-9 form.

This would save employers an enormous amount of time ...more »

Form I-9

Enhanced I-9 not working on iPad

I have the Adobe Acrobat Reader app on my iPad, with DC subscription to Document Cloud. I have followed the instructions to save the I-9 (enhanced version) to the Document Cloud, and then go into the app to open the I-9. However, it will not open (it tells me I need Acrobat Reader, which I already have and am using with all updates complete). I can open the enhanced I-9 on my Mac, but I cannot open it on my iPad. Has ...more »

I-551 Document Number for E-Verify

There is no information in the M-274 Handbook or on the I-9 Central website about recording the document number of an I-551 on Form I-9 or any guidance that an employer using E-Verify must copy both sides of a Photo Match document. This information must be provided if employers are to maintain a compliant Form I-9 and E-Verify process. In addition, the M-274 should have picture examples of how to complete Form I-9 for ...more »

E-Verify Training and Guidance

Employers copy & retain both sides of photo match documents

When an employee presents a photo match document for Section 2 the employer must be instructed to copy both sides of the document and retain them with Form I-9. This is especially important when the employer uses an agent to process E-Verify cases. For example, without copying both sides of the I-551 the agent will not have access to the document number that is required to create a case for the employee in E-Verify.
