Employers validating ssn
In light of these concerns, the Social Security Administration is taking measures to close the gap on SSN errors while targeting employers as the first line of defense.On July 23, 2018, the SSA began sending initial notices to third-party providers (payroll providers in most cases) that had mismatches on their 2017 Forms W-2.E-Verify employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of newly hired employees by electronically matching information provided by employees on the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, against records available to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). However, employers with federal contracts or subcontracts that contain the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause are required to enroll in E-Verify as a condition of federal contracting.Employers may also be required to participate in E-Verify if their states have legislation mandating the use of E-Verify, such as a condition of business licensing.If you receive the Employer Correction Request letter, you will need to take action steps to correct with the administration.
With immigration reform on center stage, employers face increased scrutiny of their hiring practices in an area traditionally overlooked or not carefully monitored by human resources officials or employment law practitioners: immigration-related employment discrimination. Employers and practitioners who counsel them must carefully follow the Form I-9 requirements when verifying the employment eligibility of new hires, making sure not to impose more demanding requirements on noncitizens.In early 2013, a large hospitality company reached an agreement with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to resolve allegations the company violated the anti-discrimination provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
