Even as some states limit employers’ use of the federal E-Verify program to confirm the employment eligibility of new hires, a recent study shows low compliance rates in states where employers are legally mandated to use E-Verify.
If accessibility is a factor, employers may soon have a new tool to make compliance easier. Last week, the USCIS E-Verify program announced that it is testing a new mobile app that allows users to create and manage cases on their iPads. To participate, interested persons must email the USCIS by May 4, 2016. The USCIS has also announced a new E-verify statistics webpage that provides interactive state-and-industry usage information.
