A new feature in E-Verify will now provide a notification to users when a case is entered that includes the same Social Security number as another case entered in the previous 30 days. Oftentimes duplicate cases are entered erroneously. The new feature will allow E-Verify users to correct duplicate cases early on in the E-Verify process.

E-Verify is an internet-based system that allows employers to verify a new hire’s work authorization by checking the employee’s information against Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) and Social Security Administration (“SSA”) databases. At the Federal level, participation in E-Verify is mandatory for federal government agencies and a few others, including businesses having contracts with federal agencies. Some states have also enacted laws mandating the use of E-Verify.  For the rest of U.S. employers E-Verify is voluntary.
