Two announcements were made today from the Dept. of Homeland Security that affect employers attempting to verify the hiring status of potential employees:
1) DHS will propose that all federal cntractors be required to use the federal government's EEV system for determining work eligibility for hiring.
2) ICE said they will provide rules for employers when they submit information to the EEV database and it comes back without a match.
This is worth watching as it may influence what happens at the state level with the new employer sanctions law.
