Earlier this month, USCIS published a "Self-Assessment Guide" for employers who use software programs to interface with the E-Verify system. The document is available here and helps employers determine whether their E-Verify usage comports with E-Verify rules and requirements. Because employers have recently experienced a number of E-Verify "Desk Audits" (purportedly meant to educate employers and improve their E-Verify compliance) stemming from alleged improper use of the web services system, employers who use software to run E-Verify queries are encouraged to review the new Guide.
