E-Verify Version 25.2 to be Implemented
E-Verify Version 25.2, which includes updates to the Tentative Non-Confirmation Process, (TNC), as well as further employee e-mail notifications is required to be implemented prior to March 1st, 2014. As of March 2nd, E-Verify will no longer support prior versions. Consequently, Equifax Workforce Solutions will implement a release incorporating these changes in late February and will be emailing invitations to an educational webinar about the release within the next few days.
As part of the new version, the TNC and Referral Letter format are to be replaced by the Further Action Notice which combines employee biographic data, the reason for the TNC, the employee’s decision to contest, and the process for contesting. The employer and employee should review the information to ensure accuracy and the employer still needs to print and give the notice to the employee.
If the employee decides to contest, the Referral Date Confirmation process is triggered. Once the employer refers the case, they will need to select a language for the confirmation then print and give it to the employee. This document provides an exact date by which the employee must visit the SSA or contact the DHS to begin resolving the TNC.
Employers should not terminate an employee as the result of receiving a TNC. This does not necessarily mean that an employee is not authorized to work, but could be the result of mismatched or erroneous data. Employers should follow the process through to a resolution, and consult their internal or outside counsel to decide upon a course of action.
