mismatched names

DHS and SSA should ask employers to post a sign in theirs office that states that the names on their SS card should be the same as the names they put on the form I-9. When jobs hunters fill out their form I-9 for employment, this would save time for both parties and avoid letters bean sent to either parties about mismatch names.

3-day rule

I would like to see the 3-day rule be changed to 6-day rule. If I hire someone on Tuesday, then I am out the rest of the week, I've missed the 3-day window; if I'm schudule to be on vacation for a week; there is no one else, in our company, that could do this. Most people take a week vacation. I would think most companies have only one (1) PR/HR person. I'm strongly asking that this be changed.

Enter Form I-9 Information

When in the "Enter Form I-9 Information" section of the E-Verify process, it would be SO HELPFUL if the Date of Birth, Document Expiration Date and the Hire Date were in mm/dd/yyyy format, as it is on the I9 form. It is easier than converting the numbers from the I9 for the month, to the actual word for that month. Seems simple, but it would be amazing if you could change that!

 

Thank you!

Eliminate List B document options which would not have photo

Paragrah A.6.a. of the MOU provides that if the employee presents a List B document, that employers may only accept List B documents that contain a photo. The E-Verify website Q&A's also states Persons under the age of 18 and adults must provide E-Verify employers with a List B document that includes a photograph. This requirement overrules the exception for minors completing Form I-9. However, when creating a case in... more »

Submissions should be checked as of the I-9 completion date

When an employee is waiting for an SSN (which can take a month or more), but their project ends and/or they leave the country, the e-verify check can only be run when the SSN is received. This is fine. However, the e-verify check results should be reckoned as the status was on the date the I-9 form was completed and not the day the SSN was received. If an employee's project lasts for less than a month and they leave the... more »

I-9 Form Obsolete

This one may be controversial, but give it a chance: Why do we still have I-9 forms at all? Many ideas on this site regard ease of transferring data from the I9 into E-Verify. But if you participate in E-verify, you are already entering all relevant data into a giant database that returns an "Authorized" or "Not Authorized" result. The data is stored in the database for future reference. So why do we still fill, process,... more »

I-9 Form Should Reflect Website

On E-Verify website when verifying a new hire, the online form should reflect/mimic the I-9 form. Ex: The website should request the Date of Birth in a number format just as the actual I-9 does. The Document Expiration Date (online) format should also be completed numerically, just as the actual I-9 form requests. Again, for Hire Date, the online format should also be numerical just as it is on the I-9 form. I have... more »

Skip Photo Matching step if E-Verify does not have a photo

Do not require the user to 'lie' by indicating that the photos match when E-Verify does not return a photo for a document subject to photo matching. If there is no photo available from E-Verify to match to the employee's document, then the photo matching step should be skipped. This should be the case using the E-Verify website as well as Web Services.

Electronic signatures on TNC documents

Since 2005 employer agents with an electronic I-9 product have been allowed to use electronic signatures on TNC documents. Having E-Verify provide the TNC document PDFs without electronic signatures is a problem since the employer agents software will now need to figure out how to apply the electronic signatures. Either the employer agent system should generate the TNC documents or E-Verify should generate the TNC documents... more »
