I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

description

  1. USCIS myE-Verify Now Available Nationwide

    By Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser



    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced the expansion of myE-Verify services nationwide. After a limited roll-out in 2014, it now serves as a “one-stop shop” for employees nationwide to open and manage a personal account.

    To create an account, the user must also complete a Self Check with a result of "Work Authorization Confirmed."


    If the user is unable to complete Self Check, they cannot set up a myE-Verify account at this time.

    myE-Verify is meant to be a free and secure way for workers to participate in the E-Verify process by accessing features dedicated for employees. It is equipped with these services:

    1. myE-Verify accounts – a free personal account to manage use of one’s information in E-Verify and Self Check;

    2. Self Lock – allows individuals to place a “lock” on their social security number (SSN) to help prevent unauthorized or fraudulent use of their SSN by another person to illegally obtain employment authorization within E-Verify. If their SSN is used, it will result in a Self Lock mismatch. Self Lock will remain active for 1 year and individuals can unlock their SSN any time a new employer needs to verify their employment eligibility in E-Verify; and

    3. myResources – a multimedia library for employees with these components: Employee Rights Toolkit, Your Rights with myE-Verify, Your Employer’s Responsibilities, and Privacy is Our Commitment.

    According to USCIS, the following features are planned for release at a later date:
    -Document Expiration Reminders, to set up alerts when a document (like a passport or driver’s license) is about to expire.
    -Case Tracker, to allow a user to track the status of their E-Verify or Self Check and know if any action is required.
    -Case History, to allow a user to monitor where and when their information has been used in the E-Verify system.

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced the launch of a new web site designed for employees, called myE-Verify. The site is described as a “one-stop shop” for employees to open and manage a personal account giving them access to employment-related identity protection services.

    myE-Verify is being rolled-out to individuals in five states: Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Mississippi, and Virginia - and the District of Columbia. Besides residing in one of these locations, the user must also complete a Self Check with a result of "Work Authorization Confirmed."


    If the user is unable to complete Self Check, they cannot set up a myE-Verify account at this time.

    myE-Verify
    is meant to be a free and secure way for workers to participate in the E-Verify process by accessing features dedicated for employees. It is currently equipped with these three services:

    1. myE-Verify accounts - a free personal account to manage use of one’s information in E-Verify and Self Check;

    2. Self Lock - allows individuals to place a “lock” on their social security number (SSN) to help prevent unauthorized or fraudulent use of their SSN by another person to illegally obtain employment authorization within E-Verify. If their SSN is used, it will result in a Self Lock mismatch. Self Lock will remain active for 1 year and individuals can unlock their SSN any time a new employer needs to verify their employment eligibility in E-Verify; and

    3. myResources - a multimedia library for employees with these components: Employee Rights Toolkit , Your Rights with myE-Verify, Your Employer’s Responsibilities , and Privacy is Our Commitment .

    According to USCIS, the following features are planned for release at a later date:
    -Document Expiration Reminders, to set up alerts when a document (like a passport or driver’s license) is about to expire.
    -Case Tracker, to allow a user to track the status of their E-Verify or Self Check and know if any action is required.
    -Case History, to allow a user to monitor where and when their information has been used in the E-Verify system.
