Employees to Receive Direct Contact From E-Verify
USCIS announced last week that they have begun capturing employee email addresses in order to reach out to them directly in the event of a tentative non-confirmation,
and certain other situations. USCIS feels that direct involvement will help employees better retain their rights throughout the process and ensure that employers don’t skip any steps in the process.
In addition to sending emails for a TNC, USCIS also stated that they will email employees directly if they have not contacted the proper government agency to correct a mismatch within 4 business days, or if the employee has not contacted the SSA to update their citizenship status in certain situations.
The employer must enter the email if it was included by the employee voluntarily when they completed section 1 of the I-9. No email addresses may be supplied by the employer if none is included on the I-9, and the employer may not change the address to the employee’s work email.
USCIS stated they have no plans to use the section 1 telephone number at present.
