E-Verify

Reporting Violations

If you believe an employer has violated E-Verify program rules, discriminated against you or treated you unfairly, we encourage you to report it. You may be able to receive pay for work you lost and even get your job back. Also, the employer may have to pay fines for violating E-Verify rules.  

To report employer misuse, privacy violations, and general E-Verify program complaints, contact the E-Verify Employee Hotline.
