The Long Arm of E-Verify Monitoring and Compliance

The latest and greatest E-Verify enhancements for FY2015, include enhanced “data analytics” which enable DHS to closely monitor and prevent potential misuse. Many HR Managers were oblivious to DHS’ Monitoring and Compliance (M&C) branch, and all of the associated (scary) audit E-Verify system.

“What happens if I make a few mistakes? Will I then be subjected to an audit?”
