The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that Self Check, a free online service of E-Verify now allows workers in all fifty states to check their own employment eligibility status.  Self Check is available in English and Spanish, and is the first online E-Verify service offered directly to workers.  A link to the press release can be found here.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services recently released two videos about the E-Verify process aimed at employers and employees.  “Know Your Rights: Employee Rights and Responsibilities,” and “Understanding E-Verify: Employer Responsibilities and Worker Rights.”

North Carolina law requires all state agencies, counties, and municipalities use E-Verify. Other employers must start using E-Verify according to the following schedule: October 1, 2012 for employers with 500 or more employees; January 1, 2013 for employers with 100 to 499 employees; and July 1, 2013 for employers with 25 to 99 employees.

The US Citizenship and Immigration Service Verification Division and the Office of Public Engagement has invited the public to participate in a national stakeholder teleconference on Thursday, February 13, 2012 at 3:00 pm (Eastern Time) to discuss a potential Final Nonconfirmation Review (FNC) process for E-Verify. Currently, E-Verify has no formal process that allows employees or employers to request that a case be reexamined if they believe that an FNC was received in error.

The Department of Homeland Security invites stakeholders to participate in a series of January 2012 webinars with E-Verify subject matter experts.

Over the summer, North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue signed into law HB 36, requiring private employers with at least 25 employees and all NC counties and cities to use E-Verify to verify the work authorization of newly hired employees. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows employers to determine the work eligibility of employees by verifying employees’ information against federal databases.

 

 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that E-Verify Self Check is now available in Spanish.  Furthermore, the online service is available to 16 additional states.  To view the press release, click here.
