New DHS Initiatives to Enhance E-Verify

leave a comment »

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has recently announced new  initiatives to strengthen the efficiency and accuracy of the E-Verify system.

These include:

  1. streamlining the adjudication process in cases of E-Verify misuse and discrimination;
  2. an informational telephone hotline for employees to provide a better customer experience for workers seeking E-Verify information; and
  3. new training videos focusing on E-Verify procedures and policies, employee rights and employer responsibilities.

A Memorandum of Agreement signed between USCIS and the Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel for Unfair Immigration-Related Employment Practices establishes a streamlined process for addressing potential cases of discrimination and employer misuse of E-Verify.

Also, the USCIS E-Verify help line will now offer employees information about the E-Verify process, as well as assistance in completing the Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification).  Callers can also use the help line to will file complaints about possible discrimination or employer misuse of the E-Verify program.
