4.2.3 Work Authorization Documents Expiring

The Work Authorization Docs Expiring case alert is a notification that an employee's Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766) or Arrival-Departure Record (Form I 94) document is expiring. This alert is intended as a reminder to reverify the employee by completing Section 3 of Form I-9. However, E-Verify should not be used for reverification, so do not use E-Verify to create a new case.

Because this is simply a reminder, no action is required or permitted in E-Verify. You may dismiss each alert by clicking Dismiss Alert.

This alert will only appear if the document the employee presented for the original E Verify case was either an Employment Authorization Document (Form I-766) or an Arrival-Departure Record (Form I-94). The alert will appear in E-Verify 90 days prior to expiration. Also, the alert only appears when the Form I-766 or Form I-94 used for the E-Verify case expires—subsequent expiration dates will not activate another case alert.

NOTE: If you have employees who are Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries who provided a TPS-related EAD when they first started working for you, you will receive a ‘‘Work Authorization Documents Expiring’’ case alert when the autoextension period for this EAD is about to expire. This alert indicates that at the end of the autoextension period, employment authorization must be reverified in Section 3 of Form I-9. Employers should not use E-Verify for reverification.
