“No Match” letters for Social Security Numbers (SSN)- Employer Information

November 22, 2010- The U.S. Department of Justice issued guidelines on what employers should and should not do when an employee’s name and social security number do not match. When faced with this situation, employers should not immediately assume that the no-match reveals information in regards to the employee’s immigration status or actual work authority. The no-match could simply be a result of an administrative error. For this reason employers are encouraged to check the reported no-match information against personnel records as well as with the employee.
