Can E-Verify “Self-Assessment” Help an Employer?

Employers enrolled in E-Verify are subject to a variety of inspections and are obligated to cooperate in investigations at any time for a number of purposes. There are two primary penalties for non-compliance with the E-Verify program: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could prohibit an employer’s continued use of the program and issue employer fines ($550-$1,100 per violation) for failure to notify DHS when employers continue to employ individuals who received a Final Non-Confirmation result in the E-Verify system.
