E-Verify Can Directly Notify Employees of an Information Mismatch

The latest customer service enhancement to E-Verify will allow direct notification to employees.  Currently, if there is a record mismatch that needs to be resolved before the employee can be confirmed as work authorized, a Tentative Non-Confirmation (TNC) is issued to the employer, who must then contact the affected employee.  TNCs are sent when information an employer provides to E-Verify about an employee does not match the data found in either Social Security Administration or U.S. Department of Homeland Security records.  Now, if an employee voluntarily provides his or her email address on the Form I-9, E-Verify will notify the employee of a TNC at the same time it notifies the employer.  What made this enhancement to E-Verify possible is a recent revision to Form I-9. The revised Form I-9 allows employees to provide their email address.  Providing an email address is completely voluntary and employers are still required to notify all employees when there is a mismatch of information and a TNC is received.  Along with the initial notice of a TNC, E-Verify will also send reminder emails to employees if no action to resolve the TNC has taken place within four days of a decision to contest and to notify them about the possible need to update a Social Security or Department of Homeland Security record.
