ABSTRACT
This section presents reports on regulations finalized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for employers to follow when they receive no-match letters from the Social Security Administration (SSA), to be implemented beginning September 2007. Such letters aim to inform employers about their employees whose Social Security numbers do not match government records. Employers who ignore the letters or fail to take corrective action will be in violation of federal immigration laws.
