Streamline Your Hiring Process with the New E-Verify+ System

Posted by Paul Saluja | Jun 05, 2024

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has recently announced the trial launch of E-Verify+, an innovative service that integrates Form I-9 with the E-Verify employment eligibility verification process. This new development aims to simplify and streamline the hiring process for employers while ensuring compliance with employment eligibility regulations.

Key Features of E-Verify+

  1. Employee-Driven Information Input: E-Verify+ allows employees to directly input their personal information and documentation into the portal. This feature significantly reduces the potential for data entry errors and ensures accuracy from the outset.

  2. Simplified I-9 Completion: Once the information is reviewed and approved by the employer, both parties can electronically sign the Form I-9. The form is then automatically completed and ready for download or archiving, eliminating the need for manual handling and storage of physical documents.

  3. Integrated Case Management: Employers can manage E-Verify+ cases in the same location as other E-Verify cases, providing a seamless transition and integrated experience within the existing E-Verify system.

  4. Direct Employee Contact for Verification Issues: If an employee's information cannot be immediately verified, E-Verify+ will contact the employee directly. This removes the burden from employers to deliver further action notices, speeding up the verification process and reducing administrative workload.

  5. Portability of Verification Status: Most employees who have been previously verified through E-Verify will be able to carry their verification status to subsequent employers. This reduces redundancy and simplifies the hiring process for both employees and employers.

Historical Context and Impact

The E-Verify program, launched in 1996 as part of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, has been a critical tool for employers to confirm the employment eligibility of their workforce. E-Verify+ builds on this foundation by incorporating employee-driven data entry and electronic processing, which USCIS anticipates will significantly decrease errors and enhance efficiency.

Implementation and Access

Starting June 25, the E-Verify account login page will only be accessible through Employers using the current E-Verify system will have the option to select between a standard E-Verify case or an E-Verify+ case, allowing flexibility and continuity in their verification processes.
