IPC RELEASES RECOMMENDATIONS ON FUTURE OF E-VERIFY

Rate this Entry

The Immigration Policy Center has released a new report entitled FOCUSING ON THE SOLUTIONS -
Employment Verification: Repairing our Broken Immigration System which discusses the future of the E-Verify program. IPC makes a number of helpful recommendations including the following:



1. Comprehensive immigration reform - No mandatory E-Verify unless it is incorporated in to comprehensive reform legislation.



2. Apply to new hires only



3. Data accuracy: Every effort must be made to ensure that the data accessed by employers is accurate, continuously updated, and subject to review.



4. Documentation: The documents that workers are required to present must be documents that all U.S. citizens and legal workers will reasonably be able to obtain.



5. Worker protections: There must be rigorous oversight of the program and significant penalties for employer misuse of the program.



6. Complaint and redress procedures: If a worker is adversely affected by an employer's misuse of the program, or because of a database error, a clear complaint process must be available so the worker can report the incident and receive redress.



7. Due-process protections: Individuals must be allowed to view their own records and contact the appropriate agency to correct any errors that exist.



8. Privacy protections: The amount of data to be collected and stored must be minimized, and penalties must be created for collecting or maintaining data not authorized in the statute. Furthermore, there must be serious penalties for use of EEVS data to commit identity fraud, unlawfully obtain employment, or for any other unauthorized purpose.



9.Resources: Sufficient resources will be necessary to implement and maintain a new or expanded EEVS, including additional personnel to handle the enormous increase in queries associated with a mandatory system.



10. Outreach: Significant community outreach and education must precede any expansion of EEVS in order to inform both employers and workers about how the system works, their rights and responsibilities under the new system, and avenues for redress in cases of error or unfair employment practices.
