New Service from E-Verify
E-Verify is a service HR Strategies provides our clients to further ensure the eligibility of new hires. According to the our website, E-Verify is an “Internet-based, free program run by the United States government that compares information from an employee’s Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 to data from U.S. government records. If the information matches, that employee is eligible to work in the United States.”
As an additional perk, E-Verify recently announced a new customer service enhancement that will include prospective employees in the email notification sent to employers when a Tentative Nonconfirmation (TNC) is issued. Starting July 1, 2013, if an employee is issued a TNC, meaning a mismatched record, they will also receive the email notification that is sent to the prospective employer. A TNC simply means mismatched records, and does not necessarily mean the employee will be unauthorized to work. This new notification will give the employee a chance to turn in the necessary documents so when they are run through E-Verify again, their Form I-9 information will match the government’s records. As ICE continues to proceed with more and more audits in 2013, HR Strategies clients can feel confident in the legal status of all new hires. Double-checking statuses of new hires is just one more way HR Strategies keeps our clients compliant.
