Please note that on Thursday, January 21, 2016, Corporate Screening’s partner, Form I-9 Compliance will implement new programming that will affect E-Verify users. The details are as follows:
Pursuant to the E-Verify Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), all E-Verify Employers agree to comply with current Form I-9 procedures, with two exceptions. In an effort to ensure employers who participate in E-Verify are in compliance with these two exceptions, Form I-9 Compliance has programmed its electronic-Form I-9 and stand-alone E-Verify form with the following two pop-up alert notifications:
- If an employee presents a “List B” identity document, the Employer agrees to only accept “List B” documents that contain a photo. (List B documents identified in 8 C.F.R. § 274a.2(b)(1)(B)) can be presented during the Form I-9 process to establish identity.) If an employee objects to the photo requirement for religious reasons, the Employer should contact E-Verify at 888-464-4218.

- If an employee presents a DHS Form I-551 (Permanent Resident Card), Form I-766 (Employment Authorization Document), or U.S. Passport or Passport Card to complete Form I-9, the Employer agrees to make a photocopy of the document and to retain the photocopy with the employee’s Form I-9. The Employer will use the photocopy to verify the photo and to assist DHS with its review of photo mismatches that employees contest. DHS may in the future designate other documents that activate the photo screening tool.
