E-Verify Case Tips

USCIS recently provided these tips for Creating E-Verify Cases.


  • Review acceptable documents from Form I-9 Lists of Acceptable Documents
  • Review an identity document with a photo if the employee presented a List B document
  • Create a case for each newly hired employee no later than the third business day after the employee starts work for pay
  • Enter the employee’s email address in E-Verify if they provided one on their Form I-9
  • Notify each employee who receives a Tentative Nonconfirmation (TNC) and give them the opportunity to contest it
  • Give employees their Further Action Notice and discuss it with them privately
  • Close cases timely
  • Safeguard all personally identifiable information


  • Discriminate against workers because of their national origin, citizenship, or immigration status
  • Verify employees hired before Nov. 7, 1986
  • Request specific documents from employees when they complete their Form I-9
  • Create cases for employees hired before you enrolled in E-Verify
    • Certain federal contractors may need to create E-Verify cases for employees that were hired before the contractor enrolled in E-Verify
  • Create duplicate cases for the same employee
  • Terminate or take adverse action against an employee because they received a TNC
  • Share any login information, including user ID and password
