Last year, U.S.Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) co-produced two educational videos sharing information about rights and responsibilities for employers and workers participating in E-Verify, an electronic program through which employers verify the employment eligibility of their employees after hiring them.
The Employee Rights and Responsibilities video emphasizes the rights of employees when employers use E-Verify. The video describes an employee’s right to contest an initial mismatch without suffering any adverse job action, such as loss of pay or training, or termination or suspension. The video also provides important contact information for employees to obtain assistance and to file complaints alleging unlawful discrimination.
The Employer Responsibilities and Workers Rights video, aimed at employers, makes clear the employer’s responsibility to use E-Verify properly and in a non-discriminatory manner. The video highlights areas where potential problems may arise, including the issuance and resolution of initial mismatches.
