“Should E-Verify Participants Maintain Copies of Employee’s Documents?”

Employers who participate in E-Verify must maintain specific documents when provided by the employee during the completion of a Form I-9. 

These are limited to the following four documents: I-766 Employment Authorization Document, I-551 Permanent Resident Card, US Passport, and US Passport Card.

All these documents will automatically generate a request from E-Verify for the employer to confirm a “Photo-Match” and as they contain an image, they must be maintained by the employer. Some E-Verify participants find it in their best interests to simply maintain all supporting documents as a “best practice”.
