E-Verify cases prior to 2008 to be deleted on March 1
On March 1, 2018, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) must dispose of E-Verify electronic employment verification system records dated on or before December 31, 2007.
USCIS annually disposes of E-Verify records that are 10 years old or older per the National Archive and Records Administration (NARA) records retention and disposal schedule (N 1-566-08-7). This reduces security and privacy risks associated with U.S. government retention of personally identifiable information.
Employers using E-Verify have until February 28, 2018 to download case information from the Historic Records Report .This will include information such as:
- Company name and location
- Initiated date and verification case number
- Employee name and date of initial resolution
- Date of additional resolution and final status
- Case closure information
What is E-Verify?
E-Verify checks the social security numbers of newly hired employees against Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security records to help ensure that they are genuinely eligible to work in the U.S.
The program quickly confirms 99.8% of work-eligible employees and takes less than two minutes to use. Over 740,000 American employers currently use E-Verify and 83% of America’s employers support a mandatory electronic verification system.
