The USCIS recently released statistics about the E-verify case processing results from fiscal year 2013 (October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013). The USCIS stated that it processed approximately 23.9 million E-verify cases in fiscal year 2013. 98.81% of those requests automatically confirmed authorization to work either instantly or within 24 hours, requiring no employee or employer action. 1.19% of the employees received Tentative Non-Confirmation (TNC). Of the 1.19% of the employees that received TNCs, .98% were found not to be employment authorized. Of the .98% of the employees found not to be employment authorized, .78% of the employees did not contest the TNC. Only .01% of the employees who received a TNC and contested the TNC were found not to be employment authorized. Additionally, the USCIS announced that it enrolled its 500,000th employer in the E-Verify system before the end of fiscal year 2013. The USCIS stated that its annual enrollment had increased tenfold since the program's inception in 1996.
