The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced new initiatives to enhance the web-based system, E-Verify.
E-Verify allows employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of newly hired employees.
The three initiatives include:
- The streamlining of the processing of E-Verify employer misuse and discrimination claims
- New E-Verify civil rights and civil liberties videos that focus on explaining E-Verify procedures and policies, employee rights, and employer responsibilities under the program
- A new telephone hotline to improve E-Verify customer service
