Pre Trump-Era Policies

  • February 27, 2018

    Previously, upon receiving a Tentative Nonconfirmation from the E-Verify process, an employee would have eight federal government working days to visit an SSA office to contest their TNC; if 10 days passed with no action from the employee, E-Verify would automatically change the employee's status to Final Nonconfirmation. The new announcement does not explain how long it extends the timeframe for, but presumably is an extension on this previous policy.
