  • If you have not yet closed the case in E-Verify, close the case as an invalid case by selecting the case closure statement, 'The case is invalid because the data entered is incorrect.' Once the case is closed, you may create a new case for the employee with the correct hire date.


  • If you have already closed the case in E-Verify and you have printed the 'E-Verify Case Details,' you should make a note on the 'E-Verify Case Details' page. Do not create a new case with the correct hire date.

Initial and date the note.
