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.

More needs to be done

People are still cheating the E-verify and to me it is not fulll proof. I have done a lot of investigations and I know for sure that some immigrants who do not have documents to work here in the United States of America impersonate people who have legit documents and use their information to beat the E-verify. I am ready to submitt proof. The HomeHealth sector is one of the areas.

Verifying usage by current e-verify users.

I have downloaded a list of employers from my state (Rhode Island) that have signed on to use E-Verify. How can I know if they are actually using the system, or if this is just a ruse to make people believe they are using it? Perhaps you could expand these lists to include the number of employees entered for verification and the number accepted or rejected. I'm cynical and have every right to be!

Self Check E-Verify

Job applicants AFTER accepting a job offer from an employer should be able to conduct a Self Check E-Verify at the hiring site in private with notification of authorized employment to employer. Since the process emulates the Form I-9/E-verify process there can be no discrimination issues and could replace the entire Form I-9 process saving great expense and time for employer while protecting the employee and employer... more »

name mismatch

the name mismatch seems to be a topic that not too many people are giving ideas on. Is it because its too complex. The SSA and USCIS and DHS could create a one month discussion on E Verity Listens on this very important topic. This would reduce letter being sent out when the name does not match the DHS data base on the form I-9

SSA database updates

Bit of a timing issue with foreigners who were previously in the US and then come back who already have SSNs. The SSA says wait ten days before applying on SS-5 for an update to the SSN record because it takes them that long to get the information from DHS. However the employee can file the SS-5 then go to the employer who has to run E-verify on them (might even be the same day). There is a field for "doesn't have... more »

Difficulty meeting the 3 day rule due to the lack of an SSN

When my company hires foreign students, they don't always have an SSN because they are newly arrived to the country. This makes it difficult to initiate a case in E-Verify since they are applying and waiting for SSA to issue them an SSN and a card. It would be great if I could enter the information into E-Verify without the SSN.

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 »

Veteran Status

With the white house's heavy focus on helping Vets get employed, they added a tax credit component for any vet who's been unemployed for more than 4 weeks. When a company hires a vet, they need to submit documentation to support the fact that they are a vet, the date they were discharged - typically a DD214 for suffices. However, if there was a way through everify that this information could be online, it would help... more »
