Slide 39
E-Verify Issues
The determination of DHS or SSN Incomplete allows an I-9 user to
go back into the I-9 and correct some fields that may have been
entered incorrectly. However, an I-9 user feels that all the
information is correct and resubmits the I-9 to E-Verify, an
employees status will be returned as TNC (tentative non
confirmation).
TNCs must be dealt with immediately.
Once an employee has decided to contest a TNC, the I-9 User must
check on a regular basis to make sure that an employee does not
move to an FNC (Final Non Confirmation).
Employment Authorized determinations must be closed out.
Slide 40
Important Things To Remember
Section 1 – Must be completed by employee on or before the first
day of employment.
Section 2 – Must be completed by employer within 3 days of
starting work.
The new Form I-9 will be used beginning May 1, 2013.
Paper I-94s will no longer be available for most non US citizens.
Employees who completed Section 1 on the old Form I-9 will be
directed to review the new fields for possible completion.
E-Verify issues need to be resolved quickly.
