E-Verify currently allows employees who cannot be electronically verified 8 business days to appeal/correct the information and continue working. "Tentative nonconfirmations in the E-Verify program may be difficult for an employee to address in the eight business days" allotted under the program, said Alejandro Mayorkas, CIS director. With a self-check option, workers could correct errors before they apply for a job and without the eight-day constraint, he said.
HomeWork Solutions, the nation's leading preparer of nanny payroll and provider of nanny tax compliance services, began offering E-Verify to clients in the summer of 2008. Clients who verify their employees employment via E-Verify are provided "safe harbor" - immunity for any government penalties - in the event the employee is later deemed ineligible for employment in the US.
