E-Verify Mandate to Come? Survey Says…
Last week U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) took a fairly big step toward determining the fate of the much rumored E-Verify mandate. While the details and any timelines for a potential E-Verify mandate are still to be determined, USCIS is looking to hear from E-Verify Employers. On February 11, 2015, USCIS published a notice in the Federal Register (80 FR 7625) seeking approval for its 2015 Survey of E-Verify Employers “to obtain data from E-Verify employers in anticipation of the enactment of mandatory state and/or national eligibility verification programs for all or a substantial number of employers”.
What does this mean for you? For starters, if the survey is approved it means E-Verify Employers could soon have an opportunity to provide important feedback on the E-Verify program. Meanwhile, speculation of an E-Verify mandate will continue, but one thing is clear: USCIS is taking steps to do its homework and prepare – and you may want to begin doing so as well.
So will there be an E-Verify mandate in the near future? The survey says…we are at least getting closer to that answer.
