U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently reminded employers that the agency must dispose of transaction records that are more than 10 years old in April 2017. Employers that have been using E-Verify for more than 10 years can down their Historic Records Reports through March 31, 2017. A Historic Records Report contains transaction records dated on or before December 31, 2006.
USCIS suggests that employers record the E-Verify case verification number on the related Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, and retain the Historic Records Report with the I-9.
