4.4 Case In Continuance
A Case in Continuance status indicates that the employee has visited an SSA field office and/or contacted DHS, but more time is needed to determine a final case result. The reason SSA or DHS needs more time varies with each situation. Employers should check E-Verify periodically for case result updates. 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.
