No-Match Letters Making a Comeback
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has been busy sending employers an “educational” letter, but you would be wise to read between the lines. With U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raising the heat on worksite enforcement audits, you should learn more about the impact the agency’s so-called educational letters can have on your immigration compliance.
On July 30, 2018, the SSA began sending an educational correspondence announcement (ECA) letter to employers and third parties nationwide. The ECA letter reminds employers of the importance of maintaining accurate wage records. It also provides a list of agency online resources that can help employers to ensure they provide accurate information.
