by | Jan 19, 2022 | Legal

 

On April 1, 2022, USCIS will dispose of E-Verify records that are more than 10 years old, which are those dated on or before December 31, 2011. E-Verify employers have until March 31, 2022, to download case information from the Historic Records Report if they want to retain information about those E-Verify cases.

Employers are required to record E-Verify case verification number on the corresponding Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification or attach a copy of the case details page to the Form I-9. Employers should retain the Historic Records Report with the Forms I-9.

For more information and guidance on downloading the Historic Records Report, please see the E-Verify fact sheet and the instructions for downloading on the USCIS website. For additional assistance please contact the immigration lawyers at David Hirson & Partners, LLP today.
