1.0 Introduction

1.0 Introduction

This guide provides a high level overview of the E-Verify process that E-Verify employer agents must follow when using E-Verify on behalf of their clients. E-Verify employer agents must follow the guidelines set forth in the E-Verify Memorandum of Understanding for E-Verify Employer Agents and use this guide as a supplement to the E‑Verify User Manual.

For purposes of this manual, the term “E-Verify employer agent” means any person, company, or other entity that provides the service of using E-Verify to confirm employment eligibility of employees of third-party employers (or clients). Clients are required to complete Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for all new employees and must follow the guidelines set forth in the Memorandum of Understanding for Employers Using an E-Verify Employer Agent (or client MOU).

1.1 Privacy And Security Statement

1.1 Privacy And Security Statement

The use of E-Verify requires the collection of personally identifiable information (PII). Employers must protect the privacy of employees who submit information to be processed through E-Verify and ensure that all personal information collected is safeguarded and used only for the purposes outlined in the MOU.

E-Verify protects PII in accordance with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) records retention and disposal schedule (N 1-566-08-7) by annually disposing of E-Verify records that are over 10 years old. This minimizes security and privacy risks associated with U.S. government retention of PII.

Failure to properly protect employee information can result in identity theft or fraud and can cause considerable inconvenience, harm or embarrassment to the employees or employer affected.

At a minimum, follow the steps in the Privacy Guidelines Overview to protect personal information and comply with the appropriate requirements.

Privacy Guidelines Overview

  • Allow only authorized users to use E-Verify.
    Ensure that only appropriate users handle information and create cases.
  • Secure access to E-Verify.
    Protect passwords used to access E-Verify and ensure that unauthorized persons do not gain access to E-Verify.
  • Protect and store employee information properly.
    Ensure that employee information is stored in a safe and secure location and that only authorized users have access to this information.
  • Discuss E-Verify results in private.
    Ensure that all case results including Tentative Nonconfirmations (mismatch) and Final Nonconfirmations are discussed in private with the employee.
INFORMATION
  • Ensure that all personally identifiable information is safeguarded.
  • Provide all clients with training on E-Verify processes, policies, and procedures.
  • Provide ongoing E-Verify training as needed to clients.

1.2 Form I-9 and E-Verify

1.2 Form I-9 and E-Verify

Employers are required to timely and properly complete and retain Form I-9 for each employee they hire.

Under general Form I-9 practice, employees can voluntarily provide their Social Security numbers (SSN) on Form I-9. However, because SSNs are required for employers to create E-Verify cases, all newly hired employees including seasonal, temporary, and rehired employees of E-Verify employers must provide their SSNs.

Additionally, a photo matching step may be triggered if the employee provided a U.S. passport, passport card, Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551), or Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766). When the employee presents one of these documents, your clients must provide you with clear photocopies of the front and back of the documents (or in the case of a U.S. passport, copies of the Passport ID page and the Passport Barcode page). For specific guidance related to Form I-9 and photo matching, refer to the E-Verify User Manual.

1.3 Create a Case

1.3 Create a Case

E-Verify cases must be created no later than the third business day after the employee starts work for pay. E-Verify employer agents who learn that they inadvertently failed to create a case by the third business day after the employee started work for pay should bring themselves into compliance immediately by creating a case for the employee and indicating the reason that the case was not created within three days of the employee’s first day of employment. E-Verify provides a drop-down list of reasons for you to select or you can provide your own reason in the field provided.

Information used to create an E-Verify case comes from the employee’s completed Form I-9. E-Verify employer agents must obtain Forms I-9 from their clients before creating E-Verify cases on their behalf. Additional information on E-Verify and Form I-9 is available in the E-Verify User Manual.

To use E-Verify, you must first log in with your assigned user ID and password. Then, follow the steps outlined in How to Create a Case – Process Overview.

How to create a case – Process Overview

  • From the E-Verify home page, click Cases and select Create New Case; or
  • Click Create New Case from quick link below.

The client has 24 hours to view, sign or decline the MOU. If the client accidentally declines the MOU or the link expires, you can resend the request for the client to sign the MOU. See Section 2.1.2, Re-send Electronic Client MOU. 

 

Upon enrollment, E-Verify employer agents must provide the E-Verify Participation and Right to Work posters in English and Spanish to their clients (both appear below). Clients must display both posters in prominent locations clearly visible to prospective employees and all employees, including those hired to work in a remote setting. This can include displaying the posters digitally, online, in hard copy at physical locations, and providing a copy of the posters with job application materials. In addition to displaying the English and Spanish versions of the E-Verify Participation poster, you may also display any of the foreign language versions provided by E-Verify.

E-Verify employer agents should provide the client with new participation posters when updates are made by DHS so that employees, applicants, and the public have the most recent and complete information regarding E-Verify. After logging in to E-Verify, the posters are found under View Essential Resources.

2.3 Terminate Client Participation

2.3 Terminate Client Participation

Client participation in E-Verify may be terminated voluntarily. To terminate participation for a client, E‑Verify employer agents must submit a termination request to E-Verify no later than 30 days in advance of the date the client would like to close its account. E-Verify employer agents may request client termination electronically through E-Verify or email by submitting a written termination notice to E‑Verify@uscis.dhs.gov or by fax to 202-443-0215.

During this 30-day period, E-Verify Employer Agents must resolve all open cases in E-Verify on behalf of the client, and they must not use E-Verify to create new cases. E-Verify Employer Agents are required to close all open E-Verify cases, even after the request to terminate the E-Verify account is made.

IMPORTANT: Once an account is terminated, all access to the account and its associated records is gone. To preserve the records from an E-Verify account, refer to Section 5.0 of the E-Verify User Manual to create and retain a user audit report before the account is terminated.

To request termination of client participation through E-Verify, follow the steps outlined in the Terminate Client Account – Process Overview.

3.0 E-Verify Process Overview

3.0 E-Verify Process Overview

E-Verify employer agents are not able to create a case in E-Verify for their clients until they have enrolled the client. The initial verification page contains a field in which the E-Verify employer agent must select the client corresponding with the employee being verified.

The E-Verify process begins with a completed Form I-9. E-Verify confirms employment eligibility by comparing the employee’s Form I-9 information entered in E‑Verify by the E-Verify employer agent with the information in records available to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and/or the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

tabanks
Last Reviewed/Updated:

3.1 Case Results

3.1 Case Results

After Form I-9 information has been entered into E-Verify, E-Verify promptly provides an initial case result. An initial case result is the first, and sometimes final, case result provided by E-Verify. An overview of the case result is listed in the Case Results – Overview.

CASE RESULTS - OVERVIEW

Employment Authorized

The employee’s information matched records available to DHS and/or SSA.

E-Verify Needs More Time

This case was referred to DHS for further verification.

Tentative Nonconfirmation (Mismatch)

Information did not match records available to DHS and/or SSA. Additional action is required.

Case in Continuance

The employee has contacted DHS or visited an SSA field office, but more time is needed to determine a final case result.

Close Case and Resubmit

DHS or SSA requires that you close the case and create a new case for this employee. This result may be issued when the employee’s U.S. passport, passport card, or driver’s license information is incorrect.

Final Nonconfirmation

E-Verify cannot confirm an employee’s employment eligibility after the employee contacted DHS or visited SSA.

Each case result is unique and may or may not require additional action by you, your client and/or the employee. For specific guidance related to case results, refer to the E-Verify User Manual.

3.1.1 Tentative Nonconfirmation (Mismatch) Process Summary

3.1.1 Tentative Nonconfirmation (Mismatch) Process Summary

A mismatch case result means that the information entered into E-Verify does not initially match records available to DHS and/or SSA. It is possible for an employee to receive a dual mismatch, which means the case received a mismatch result from both agencies at the same time because information entered into E-Verify did not match records available to both DHS and SSA. A mismatch does not necessarily mean that the employee is not authorized to work in the United States; however, additional action is required to resolve the issue. If the case results in a mismatch in E-Verify, below is a summary of the actions you, your client and the employee must take to complete the referral process as soon as possible within 10 federal government working days after E-Verify issued the mismatch result.

IMPORTANT: Employers may not terminate or take any other adverse action against an employee (such as denying work, delaying training, withholding pay, or otherwise assuming that he or she is not authorized to work) because of the mismatch, until the mismatch becomes a Final Nonconfirmation.

E-VERIFY EMPLOYER AGENT ACTION

  • Notify the client of the mismatch case result.
  • Instruct the client to notify the employee that they must tell you their decision as soon as possible by the 10th federal government working day after E-Verify issued the mismatch result or you will close the case in E-Verify.
  • Print the Further Action Notice and send it to the client.
  • Instruct the client to review the Further Action Notice privately with the employee.
  • Instruct the client to have the employee indicate on the Further Action Notice whether or not he or she will take action to resolve the mismatch.
  • Instruct the client to have the employee sign and date the Further Action Notice printed in English, and then provide the employee a copy of the Further Action Notice in English (and a translated version, if appropriate).
  • Instruct the client to keep the original signed Further Action Notice on file with Form I-9.
  • Take next action based on the employee’s decision to take action or not regarding the mismatch.

If the employee will take action to resolve mismatch:

  • Print the Referral Date Confirmation and provide it to the client.

If the employee does not give the client their decision within 10 federal government working days:

  • Close the case in E-Verify. DHS will update the employee’s case with a final case result of Final Nonconfirmation.
  • Indicate whether the employee is no longer employed or the employee will continue to work for the client.

THE CLIENT'S ACTION

  • Review the Further Action Notice privately with the employee.
  • Have the employee indicate whether they will take action to resolve the mismatch on the Further Action Notice by the end of the 10th federal government working day after E-Verify issued the mismatch.
  • Instruct employee to sign and date the Further Action Notice.
  • Provide a copy of the signed Further Action Notice to the employee.
  • Keep the original signed Further Action Notice on file with the employee's Form I-9.
  • Send a copy of the signed Further Action Notice to the E-Verify employer agent.
  • If the employee chooses to take action to resolve the mismatch, provide him or her with the Referral Date Confirmation.
  • Instruct the employee that they must tell you their decision as soon as possible by the 10th federal government working day after E-Verify issued the mismatch result or you will close the case in E-Verify.

THE EMPLOYEE'S ACTION

  • Decide whether to take action to resolve the mismatch and indicate the choice on the Further Action Notice by the end of the 10th federal government working day after E-Verify issued the mismatch.
  • Acknowledge receipt of mismatch by signing and dating the Further Action Notice.
  • Take next action based on decision to take action or not to resolve the mismatch.
  • Notify the employer of your decision by the 10th federal government working day after E-Verify issued the mismatch result or they will close the case in E-Verify.

If employee will take action to resolve the mismatch:

  • Contact DHS or visit an SSA field office with a copy of the Further Action Notice within 8 federal government working days.
