DHS, Due Diligence, E-Verify, I-9, Immigration Compliance, OSC, USCIS
USCIS, OSC and DHS on its E-Verify Connection have issued guidance stating that section 1 cannot be pre-populated during the on-boarding process of a new hire. This is true even if the employee reviews the entries and signs the section in affirmation of the entries.
OSC issued similar guidance in a Technical Assistance Letter (TAL).
However, an employer can pre-populate certain fields in Section 2 such as: employer’s business or organization name, employer’s business or organization address (street number and name), city or town, state, and zip code.
