United States employers that hire foreign workers often have to use the E-Verify program to confirm the eligibility of their employees through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services agency. The program was down for the last two days but is now up and running with system enhancements that will improve the user experience. The purpose of the updates was to allow users to increase the overall accuracy of the employment eligibility verification process.
Some of the improvements that were part of the modernization include the following:
- Features that aim to assist users in entering accurate information into E-Verify
- Those who make errors entering data will receive real-time feedback so it can be resolved quickly
- Decreased number of steps to either create or close a case
- Users can now upload pictures of needed documents using their phone or tablet
- Enhancements to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services security as well as additional features for employer accountability
Employers and federal contractors are able to use the E-Verify program to quickly and efficiently determine whether a current or prospective employee has the appropriate visa to be able to legally work in the United States. If an employer has questions about petitioning for a foreign employee, it may be beneficial for them to speak with an experienced immigration law attorney.
