Q. What happens if I run an E-Verify check on an employee and find out he or she is an unauthorized worker?

A. E-Verify sends an initial response within seconds of when an employer conducts a check. If the check results in a “tentative nonconfirmation” (TNC) for a hire, you must advise the employee of the TNC and the employee must contact the Department of Homeland Security, the Social Security Administration or both to resolve the TNC issue. Employees have eight business days to do this.

The employee may return to work while the finding is under review. However, if E-Verify ultimately doesn’t find the employee to be authorized, the employer must terminate the employee (or risk a finding that it knowingly employed an unauthorized worker).
