Important Reminder: Clients Must Close All Finalized or Unnecessary E-Verify Cases
Tags : I-9/E-Verify Compliance
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services has been cracking down on organizations that are failing to timely close their E-Verify cases. Failure to comply with USCIS policy guidelines may result in termination of an employer's E-Verify account.
E-Verify published a reminder yesterday (and Business Information Group sent out a news item in September) that employers are required to close every case in a timely fashion.
Cases that must be manually closed include those that were:
- Recently updated with final responses;
- Created in error;
- Created with incorrect information;
- Created for employees who are no longer employed; or
Cases that cannot be closed until final case results are issued include cases in a status of "Referred," "Verification in Process," or "Case in Continuance." Clients are required to check such cases often for results.
E-Verify will automatically close cases that receive a result of Employment Authorized.
Additional information and guidance on closing cases can be found in the E-Verify Quick Reference Guide for Employers as well as the E-Verify User Manual Section 4.1.
