Can E-Verify be used to confirm employment authorization of workers with pending I-129CW petitions?

Those persons with continuing employment authorization based upon lawful presence and employment on November 27, 2011 and an I-129CW filed by November 28, 2011, do not fall under the category of new hires and so are not required to check their status in E-Verify at this time.
