DHS plans to enhance E-verify.

DHS has publicized initiatives to enhance the E-verify program here. The initiatives include:
(1) a new agreement with the Department of Justice that will streamline the adjudication process in cases of E-Verify misuse and discrimination;
(2) an informational telephone hotline for employees to provide a more timely, effective and seamless customer experience for workers seeking E-Verify information; and
(3) new training videos focusing on E-Verify procedures and policies, employee rights and employer responsibilities in English and Spanish.

The DHS's fact Sheet answers questions such as when and why E-Verify will share information with DOJ, what information it will share, what videos are available and where, how the employee hotline will work, what issues it will address, etc.

For more information on E-Verify, see my prior blog posts here.
