USCIS Changes That Make Verifying Work Permits Easier for Employers Using E-Verify

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently announced some changes that will make it easier for employers to verify work eligibility for their employees using the E-Verify system. These changes went into effect after the new SB1718 law was passed in the Florida senate last month.

With E-Verify, employers can verify an employee’s social security number and identity information online to confirm they have legal permission to work in the United States. Before, the process could be complicated and required a lot of paperwork. 

But under the new SB1718 law, USCIS has implemented changes to streamline the process. Now, employers can verify work permits directly through the E-Verify system without having to submit paper verification forms. Employers can also now use E-Verify to verify short-term work permits, like Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). 

These changes mean employers can comply with legal requirements to verify employment eligibility more efficiently. Using E-Verify is mandatory in many states after hiring a new employee. With a simplified process, more employers will be able to use the system to ensure their employees have legal permission to work.

Advocates argue these E-Verify changes also better protect workers’ rights by reducing discrimination and ensuring valid work permits are recognized. This E-Verify system update is a positive step for both employers and employees. The employment verification process just became much easier!
