It is designed to VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:15 Jun 22, 2009 Jkt 217001 determine the employment eligibility of new hires. The E-Verify Program allows participating employers to electronically confirm the employment eligibility of newly hired employees to help maintain a stable and legal workforce. An E-Verify Designated Agent is a liaison between E-Verify and employers who choose to outsource submission of employment eligibility verification queries for newly hired employees. EVerify Designated Agents conduct the verification process for other employers or clients. An E-Verify Designated Agent must register online and sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with SSA and DHS. Once the MOU is approved, the E-Verify Designated Agent can then begin registering employers and clients who have designated it to perform their verification services. The program design for Designated Agents has changed very little over the past several years. Accordingly, USCIS plans to review the Designated Agent process to assess how Designated Agents provide this service to their clients. The purpose of this notice is to request that Designated Agents, their clients, or others with Designated Agent experience provide their comments or suggestions for improving the Designated Agent process. Paperwork Reduction Act The E-Verify Program has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act. The approved OMB Control Number is 1615–0092.
