E-Verify

What is a desk review?

A desk review is a compliance assistance tool that consists of phone calls and emails between Monitoring and Compliance and E-Verify participants. Desk reviews allow Monitoring and Compliance to help E-Verify participants correct employment verification activities that Monitoring and Compliance has detected as non-compliant. Participants selected for a desk review provide Monitoring and Compliance with E-Verify employment-related documents, such as Further Action Notices and employment verification procedures and process documents. Monitoring and Compliance reviews and analyzes these documents to determine if the participant is properly following E-Verify policies and procedures. Monitoring and Compliance will then assist E-Verify participants to correct any problems and provide an enhanced level of customer assistance.
