8 CFR Part 274a: Safe-Harbor Procedures for Employers Who Receive a No-Match Letter: Clarification; Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis, Supplemental Proposed Rule   [open pdf - 224KB]

"The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is proposing to amend its regulations that provide a 'safe harbor' from liability under section 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act for employers who follow certain procedures after receiving a notice - from the Social Security Administration (SSA), called a 'no-match letter,' or from DHS, called a 'notice of suspect document' - that casts doubt on the employment eligibility of their employees. The prior final rule was published on August 15, 2007 (the August 2007 Final Rule). Implementation of that rule was preliminarily enjoined by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on October 10, 2007. The district court based its preliminary injunction on three findings. This supplemental proposed rule clarifies certain aspects of the August 2007 Final Rule and responds to the three findings underlying the district court's injunction."
