Coming Soon –Revised and New E-Verify MOUs
On Dec. 8, 2013, E-Verify will release revised Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) for E-Verify browser users and new MOUs for users accessing E-Verify through Web services.
Current E-Verify users will not be required to execute a new MOU, but are bound by any and all enhancements to the E-Verify program including the new or revised MOU that applies to their access method. Current users should become familiar with the new or revised MOU that applies to their access method.
Employers who join the E-Verify program on or after Dec. 8, 2013 will execute a new or revised MOU (Revision Date 06/01/2013) during enrollment. Please visit the MOU webpage for a preview of the revised and new MOUs and to read more information about this release, including what it means for existing users.
E-Verify revised and added new the MOUs in response to customer feedback and to update the MOUs with policy and process changes. Users will find that the new versions have more plain language and are easier to understand.
Please join us for a stakeholder teleconference on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 and Thursday, December 12, 2013 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (EST) to discuss the new and revised MOUs.
New E-Verify Enhancement to Help Prevent Fraud
On November 18, 2013, E-Verify announced an enhancement that will help identify and deter fraudulent use of Social Security numbers (SSNs) for employment eligibility verification. E-Verify is now able to detect patterns that indicate an SSN may have been used fraudulently. The enhancement strengthens the integrity of the E-Verify program by implementing standards that have proven effective in protecting individual identities. There will be no change to the E-Verify process for employers as a result of this enhancement.
For more information, see the Press Release.

Temporary Protected Status Extended for Somalians
The Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for Somalia has been extended for an additional 18 months, from March 18, 2014 through September 17, 2015. There will be no automatic extension of employment authorization documents for TPS beneficiaries from Somalia.
Current Somalian TPS beneficiaries seeking to extend their TPS status must re-register during the 60-day re-registration period that runs from October 31, 2013, through December 30, 2013. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) encourages beneficiaries to register as soon as possible within the 60-day re-registration period. Please note that there is no e-filing offered: All Somalia TPS re-registrations must be submitted by mail.
Certain nationals of Somalia (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in Somalia) who have not previously applied for TPS may be eligible to apply under the late initial registration provisions, if they meet: (1) At least one of the late initial filing criteria and (2) all TPS eligibility criteria (including continuous residence in the United States since May 1, 2012, and continuous physical presence in the United States since September 18, 2012).
Please see www.uscis.gov for more information about TPS for Somalia.
