On December 8, 2013, E-Verify will release new and revised Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs). These MOUs have two primary enhancements: (1) they are tailored to each access method and (2) they are easier to read and understand.
There will now be a total of six MOUs. The three standard MOUs for E-Verify browser users have been retitled and revised-these are for the access methods for Employer, E-Verify Employer Agent, and Corporate Administrator. The fourth existing access method for Web Services has been expanded into three new MOUs for Web Services users and developers.
The purpose of each MOU is to set forth the points of the contractual agreement between the Department of Homeland Security and the Employer regarding the Employer’s participation in the E-Verify program. Each MOU explains certain features of the E-Verify program and enumerates specific responsibilities of DHS, the Social Security Administration, and the Employer.
