Since it is likely that the employer will terminate an employee that receives a Final Nonconfirmation, it would seem to be better to model the FNC process after the TNC referral process. The FNC employment authorized email notice states that the employee is employment authorized, but that the employer MAY rehire the employee suggesting that the employer may choose to not rehire the employee even though the employee may... more »
Regarding the What's New item: All E-Verify Cases Must Reach A Final Case Result and Be Closed 1. E-Verify will transfer all case data to a new interface later this month. Q: E-Verify should tell customers (users and agents) what is happening, when it is happening, and why it is happening 2. Open cases that have not been accessed for more than 365 days will be closed by E-Verify, but will remain accessible to employers... more »
Since the E-verify update it is very difficult to find open cases. For example the system has been sending multiple US citizen cases directly to "E-verify Needs More Time". There is no where to see all of these cases on one screen. Very frustrating.
After the initial alert and the I9 document has been updated. There should be a place in E-Verify we can update the information and have another update if there is an expiration date on the renewed document. If needed.
To properly process cases for the new reverification feature E-Verify may need to: 1. Allow a case to be updated indicating the employee's immigration status has changed 2. Allow a user (website and Web Services) to indicate that the employee is no longer employed 3. Track the first and all subsequent work authorization expiration dates 4. Allow reverification cases to be submitted prior to the work authorization expiration... more »
My E-Verify was marked as late even though it was submitted within 3 days because the E-Verify System time is based on a different time zone then my location (and even the E-Verify clock on the website said 6/9 while the submission date indicated 6/10. The date for timelienss should be based on the timezone the E-Verify is submitted in.
Instead of having to enter the date always as mm/dd/yyyy format manually, it would be helpful to have several options: drop-downs, an option to enter it in the numbers format, AND a little calendar where you can easily click on the date you want, while also being able to type in the date in m/d/yy or mm/d/yy or variations of that without putting 0s in front of everything and typing out the entire 4-digit year, and having... more »
Add an identifier or name to identify the user (employer or agent) processing an E-Verify case. When using an agent who provides web service functionality (such as an electronic Form I-9 system) only the name of the employee registered as the agent contact is tracked with the case. This would provide much improved tracking and forensics for every case processed by web services.
We are an E-verify employer agent and I recently learned that the Case Resolution team can only see our contact information, and cannot see our client companies points of contact to be able to speak to them about specific case issues. We ensure the points of contact are up to date for our client companies, but if the Case resolution team cannot see them it slows case resolutions since they have to contact us first to... more »
When one of our agents consulted an E-Verify representative, we were told that choosing "Technical Problems" is compliant if the technical problems are with E-Verify itself, but non-compliant if it is technical problems on our company's end (because we should be able to manage this). However, it was not made clear regarding compliance status if the issue is with the CBP website generating the electronic I-94. Clearly... more »
When SEVIS II rolls out, F-1 students can use their own individual student information screens to notify employers of OPT employment authorization after the electronic (ELIS) I-765 approval is sent electronically by USCIS to the SEVIS system. Plastic card format EAD issuance can be discontinued. Then E-Verify can be used to validate the F-1 student's screen information, if needed. This procedure will eliminate mailing... more »
I noticed that E-Verify didn't have a timeframe to close cases. I've set timeframes for my staff to do this, but I think it would be helpful if E-Verify set an official timeframe to close cases.
I STILL HAVE SEEN MAY CASES CLEAR E-VERIFY WHEN THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE. PROCESS NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED BY VERIFYING DRIVERS LICENSE/ID INFO WITH THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMIN AND ALSO DRIVERS LICENSE PHOTO VERIFICATION ON ALL APPLICANTS SHOULD BE MANDATORY.
It is my understanding that E-Verify is trying to reduce the window in which employers can run compliant E-Verify queries, so why is the option to enter (usually accidentally) employment start dates over a year(!) in advance of the actual start date? Twice today, I have tried to enter 2016, only to accidentally select 2017, meaning I have to mark the case as invalid and re-enter a new query. If I enter 2015 on accident,... more »
When a employee contests a Final Nonconfirmation, E-Verify reviews the case and issues a Final Nonconfirmation Status Update via fax. E-Verify states that when a case receives a Final Nonconfirmation it is not possible to update the case status to reflect the new status. This policy causes concerns for many employers and should be changed to allow the status to be updated if the case has not been closed.
