E-Verify+, our highly anticipated next generation service is coming in 2024!
The “plus” in E-Verify+ represents the benefits the new service provides to employers and employees alike. E-Verify+ provides employers added efficiency and employees more control over their personal information.
E-Verify+ answers the call of the modern workplace by streamlining the Form I-9 and employment eligibility verification process into one seamless experience, and it is on track to be available later this year!
Pilot launch: E-Verify+ is launching the service as a pilot this spring. We look forward to the valuable feedback from the pilot to make this new service best meet your needs!

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas extended and redesignated Syria for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from April 1, 2024, through Sept. 30, 2025. Syrian nationals and individuals having no nationality who last habitually resided in Syria may submit an initial registration application under the redesignation of Syria for TPS and apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Current beneficiaries who want to maintain their status must re-register and may apply for new EADs.
Given the time frames for processing TPS re-registration and EAD renewal applications, USCIS has automatically extended through March 31, 2025, the validity of certain EADs with Card Expires dates of March 31, 2024; Sept. 30, 2022; or March 31, 2021, issued under the TPS designation for Syria.
Creating an E-Verify Case
After a new employee has completed Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, create a case in E-Verify for this employee. Enter the EAD document number you entered on Form I-9, as well as the automatically extended date of March 31, 2025. You must reverify these employees on Form I-9 before they start work on April 1, 2025.
Staffing agencies have a variety of business models - they may function as the employer of the employee or serve as a matchmaker for other employers who hire employees.
Staffing agencies must create E-Verify cases for all their new hires. This means that if an E-Verify-enrolled staffing agency is required to complete a Form I-9 when hiring, the staffing agency is also required to create an E-Verify case for that new hire. Staffing agencies cannot avoid creating an E-Verify case for an employee merely because a client requests that the staffing agency not create an E-Verify case.
If the relationship is such that the staffing agency is not the hiring employer (i.e., not required to complete a Form I-9), then the staffing agency is not responsible for E-Verify case creation for that individual.
You may wish to contact your legal counsel for help in determining whether your relationship with the individual requires you to complete Form I-9 and create an E-Verify case.
