But Congress is considering legislation not only to mandate the system for all employers, but to also require them to conduct a status check of all employees not electronically verified within the three preceding years and terminate those determined unauthorized to work. To use E-Verify while avoiding the implications of employment discrimination, employers are advised to follow 13 steps, including:

  • Do not use E-Verify as a tool to prescreen individuals based on their national origin, citizenship or immigration status.
