U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Sept. 11 announced it was opening a 60-day comment period to gather feedback on changes made to the E-Verify program. ABC is encouraging members to respond and is offering a template to help with the process.
USCIS is requesting comments on its plans to revise the way information for the E-Verify program is collected.
According to the USCIS, the change will result in the following time burdens:
- 2 hours 16 Minutes to review and sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU); register for the program online; train new users; and review the User Guide;
- 1 hour to training existing users on new features and system updates; and
- 8 minutes submit E-Verify cases.
To submit comments, fill out the ABC-provided form available here. For more information, visit www.regulations.gov. The comment period ends Nov. 13.
