The earliest you may verify a new hire in E-Verify is after an offer of employment is accepted and a Form I-9 is complete. You must create a case in E-Verify for a new hire within three business days after the employee starts work for pay.
For example, if a new hire accepted an offer and completed Form I-9 on May 5, but does not start work for pay until May 26, you may create a case for the new hire in E-Verify any day between May 5 and May 29 (the last date to create the case is three business days after the day the employee begins work for pay).
