new e-verify self check goes live

Beginning March 18th, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) went live with its new E-Verify Self Check system. It is presently only available to individuals who are physically located in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Mississippi, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, but will eventually be available nationwide.

As the United States government continues to encourage widespread adoption of the E-Verify employment authorization program, the new E-Verify Self Check is designed to reduce the number of tentative nonconfirmations (TNC) issued.  Prospective employees can opt to electively pre-screen themselves through the Self Check program, providing themselves with an opportunity to resolve problems such as paperwork errors before E-Verify returns a TNC.  One such common error arises from the failure to declare a name change to the Social Security Administration, often following a marriage.  While the E-Verify system has experienced some bumps in the road since its introduction several years ago, USCIS has made a strong effort to respond proactively through programs such as this one.

The E-Verify system is mandatory for some employers, such as those who receive grants or funding from the federal government, but it is not always the best solution for all.  At Wildes & Weinberg P.C, we have developed a carefully trained team specializing in employment authorization verification.  To discuss what compliance method works best for your company, or to inquire about a free Form I-9 compliance workshop, please contact Managing Partner Michael Wildes at or by phone at (212) 753-3468.
