The USCIS recently reminded the public that it has launched a new E-Verify Employers Search Tool which allows individuals to find employers currently enrolled in E-Verify. The new tool lets individuals filter, sort and export results found during a search. The information includes names of employer businesses, whether the employer is a federal contractor, and the city and state where the employer is located. The USCIS noted that the new tool will in particular benefit F-1 students in STEM programs who would like to apply for a 17-month Optional Practical Training (OPT) STEM extension because the students may only work for employers enrolled in the E-Verify system. This tool will assist the students in finding and confirming whether a current or potential employer is enrolled in the E-Verify system and thus if the student is eligible for the 17-month OPT STEM extension while working for this employer.
