In a strange turn, an audit by the SSA's inspector general discovered that the department responsible for maintaining the E-Verify system has failed to check their own employees. It failed to check 19% of new hires in 2008 and 2009. Nearly half of the checks they did perform were not done according to time limitations set by E-Verify.
All federal agencies are required to check their new hires agaisnt the system. Federal contractors are also required to check new hires, and three states require all businesses check new hires.
