The big issue is you CANNOT check your existing employees for some dumb reason.
Our government doesn't want to check on existing employees and it's by design and motive, IMO.

Yes, it does. It is 96% accurate. That's why illegals won't even apply at places that use e-verify.

E-Verify works rather well, though the error rate is still about 4%. Basically, once the I-9 is completed, the information is entered into E-Verify (or automatically submitted, if using an electronic I-9 system).

Depending on the documentation that is submitted, there may be the chance to review the photo on file with USCIS to match with the photo on the document the employee is presenting. Essentially, E-Verify checks with two databases: the USCIS and the SSA.

If there's a 'tentative non-confirmation' - which is E-Verify lingo for 'oops, we have a problem' - employers are instructed to firstly check to make sure there are no typos or transposed digits (believe it or not, this is one of the main causes for tentative non-confirms).

Then, detailed instructions are provided to the employee. The employee is instructed to read carefully and follow the instructions to get whatever discrepancy results (the instructions do show which of the two - USCIS or SSA - is issuing the notice) within 8 business days.

Many times, there is nothing wrong with the employee. It may simply be that there are typos in the records or the person got married or divorced, etc.

While the person is attempting to fix any issues, s/he cannot be terminated or suspended. The system automatically records when a tentative non-confirmation has been resolved and cleared satisfactorily or not.

If the employee does not fix the issue and/or the agency cannot clear, then the employee is terminated.

As much as the system is fairly effective, it is still dependent on properly trained HR people and still requires the I-9 to be completed accurately.

I do a fair amount of I-9 and E-Verify training, mostly because there are plenty of poorly trained people. I personally would like to see every employer in the U.S. use E-Verify.

When I was still working (unemployed now for over a year and a half) my company e-verified us EVERY year ( I was there for almost 8 years) ... so this is not true.

I work for a fortune 500 corp.
We got E- verified last year or the year before I forget which, but everyone had to go through it.

I don't think that is mandated though and that is the problem. If e-verify is mandated nationwide the law has stated that only new hires will have to pass e-verify checks not those already on the payroll. Hmm, agenda much?
