REPORTING VIOLATIONS

If you believe an employer has violated E-Verify program rules, discriminated against you or treated you unfairly, we encourage you to report it. You may be able to receive pay for work you lost and even get your job back. Also, the employer may have to pay fines for violating E-Verify rules.  

To report employer misuse, privacy violations, and general E-Verify program complaints, contact the E-Verify Employee Hotline. We can also answer questions about E-Verify policies and procedures, Form I-9, and employment eligibility. We are available Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Eastern), except when the federal government is closed. For users who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf/blind, or have speech disabilities which require accommodation, our TTY phone is available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. E.T.
