E-Verify Posters

I would like the Right to Work Poster and the E-Verify Participation poster to be redesigned so that they do not incorporate a solid or colored background. It is such a waste of printer ink. Money is tight, and using printer ink for background fill is a waste of resources. Please allow us save our ink for words.

Form I-9

Definition of "Break in Employment" needs stronger parameters

The definition of break in employment is left up to the employer to define. I work with many temp agencies, and they view their employees as "active" even if they are not currently on an assignment, thus I am forced to accept an everify that is several years old. I would like to see tighter parameters around this topic.

Case Management

E-verify should block certain cases from being run in everify

If a user is attempting to run a case on an employee, and that empoyee's hire date preceeds the MOU date the user should be blocked from running this case as it is a violation of the MOU. This makes more sense than sending a follow up e-mail telling them that they performed a behavior that they shouldn't have.

I-9 Expiring Credentials (Alert)

We would like to receive an email with the I9 Expiring Credentials information 90, 60 or 30 days prior to the expiriration date. What are your thoughts?

Also, if the applicant has an email address on file (your government records), can they too get an alert reminder to renew their credentials?

E-Verify Website

Ability to message through E-verify accounts

I think you should have the ability to send e-mails directly through the E-verify system, instead of using our outside e-mail accounts. This will make it easier to contact CCO and get follow up correspondence when we are already working within the system. This could be a seperate tab just like the "open cases" tab, only it would be a "my messages" tab.

Form I-9

Bad Form

I am a big fan of E-Verify. But, whoever designed the new Form I-9 (OMB No. 1615-0047) obviously never had to complete the E-Verify form on-line. Having done so for thousands of employees, I was dismayed to discover that the new I-9 consists of 2 pages with essential information on each side. Come-on guys! The least you could have done was put all the information required for E-Verify on one side with the fields ...more »

Case Management

Something like SSA

Can you allow us to submit daily files of employee data to be submitted? Then a return file can be downloaded from the site giving the comformation numbers. Putting the employees in one by one is very time comsuming. The SSA site allows us to do this and takes us a lot less time to verify all of our new employee ss#'s.

Email Reminders

There are a variety of tasks that might need to be completed - closing a case, the re-verification of eligibility for someone whose documents are expiring, etc. Why not email a reminder that there is something to be done? I have employees with documents that don't expire until 2019. Ok, hang on a second, let me flip my calendar to seven years hence and mark on it to re-check their documents. If I am not here, since ...more »

Form I-9

Optional E-Mail

I just read through the instructions for the new I-9 and saw that fields for an email address and phone number have been added to section one. According to the instructions, the fields are optional. However, the fact that entering this information is optional is not noted on the actual I-9 form. The fields on the I-9 should read: E-mail Address (optional) Telephone Number (optional). I can see where a lot of people will ...more »

Form I-9

I-9 Form

Since the Social Security Administration records (i.e. Social Security Number) is a part of the eVerify system, I suggest that the "expiration" line on List C be used to enter the name as it is on the SSCard. This will encourage employers to enter employees under the name on record with SSA. This will also reduce the number of no match letters that are issued to payroll departments.

Form I-9

I-9 needs a place to enter the EVerify #

To reduce the cost of ink and paper why isn't there a space on the I-9 to enter the everify #. Currently we are printing out and stapling to the I-9. For those companies that scan copies into a paperless vault this would really help and save time and costs.

User Manual

The number one complaint I hear from employers who attempt to enroll in E-Verify is how burdensome and time-consumiing the process is. The user manual is 85 plus pages, and takes some employers hours to get through. The manual should be edited and condensed. I've noted that there is an E-Verify users guide on-line, published by USCIS, that is 20 pages. I don't know if the guide contains all the info needed to understand ...more »
