E-Verify+ Trial Launch: What Employers Need to Know

Posted by Paul Saluja | Jun 26, 2024

On May 29, 2024, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a trial launch of E-Verify+. This new initiative aims to refine the employment eligibility confirmation process, enhancing efficiency and security for both employers and employees. At Saluja Law, we are committed to keeping you informed about such significant developments. Here's a detailed look at what E-Verify+ entails and what it means for employers.

What is E-Verify+?

E-Verify+ is an advanced version of the existing E-Verify system, designed to streamline the employment eligibility verification process. While the traditional E-Verify system allows employers to electronically confirm their employees' eligibility, E-Verify+ introduces several new features aimed at improving the overall user experience and security.

Key Features of E-Verify+

  1. Employee-Driven Data Entry: Employees can now enter their personal information and documents through a secure, employee-facing “myE-Verify” account. This shift aims to enhance the security of employee data and reduce data entry errors that could lead to identification mismatches.

  2. Direct Notification to Employees: E-Verify+ will notify employees directly about their employment eligibility status. This feature eliminates the need for employers to deliver Further Action Notices in case of identification mismatches, streamlining the process and ensuring employees receive timely updates.

  3. Transferable Verification Status: Employees previously verified can transfer their verification status to subsequent employers quickly. This feature facilitates a smoother transition for employees changing jobs and reduces redundancy in the verification process.

Benefits for Employers

E-Verify+ is designed to alleviate the administrative burden on employers. By allowing employees to handle their data entry and receive direct notifications, employers can focus on other critical aspects of their business. Additionally, the streamlined process is expected to speed up eligibility confirmation, making the hiring process more efficient.

What Employers Should Consider

As E-Verify+ undergoes its trial phase, employers should remain vigilant about how these changes might impact their operations and compliance obligations. Here are some points to consider:

  • Form I-9 Compliance: The integration of E-Verify+ with Form I-9 processes and third-party verification systems needs close monitoring. It is crucial to understand how these updates will affect your liability for Form I-9 paperwork errors and DHS enforcement practices.
  • Choosing Between Systems: Upon full launch, employers will have the option to use either the existing E-Verify system or E-Verify+. Evaluate the features and benefits of both systems to determine which best suits your needs.
  • Feedback and Adaptation: Participate in providing feedback during the trial phase to help refine the system. Stay informed about updates and changes to ensure a smooth transition when E-Verify+ is fully implemented.


The trial launch of E-Verify+ represents a significant step forward in employment eligibility verification. By enhancing data security, reducing administrative burdens, and speeding up the verification process, E-Verify+ promises to be a valuable tool for employers. At Saluja Law, we are here to help you navigate these changes and ensure compliance with all relevant regulations. Stay tuned for more updates and insights as E-Verify+ progresses towards its full launch.
