USCIS has extended the comment period for proposed changes to the E-Verify system. These changes would expand the information collected through the E-Verify program in two ways. First, the proposal creates a streamlined agency review process for Final Non Confirmations. Second, the proposed changes would mandate reverification of all employees with expiring temporary work authorization, extending the use of E-Verify beyond the initial hiring process. Currently, employers must update an employee’s form I-9 with updated employment authorization documentation, but no actions are required in E-Verify. Under the proposed changes, employers will then be required to enter information from the updated I-9 into the E-Verify system.
