Stay informed of "no match" letter requirements

Part of the Bush Administration's attempts to control illegal immigration is an initiative that requires an employer to investigate the legal status of employees who have triggered a "no match" notice. No matchletters are generated when a name and social security number reported on a W2 form do not match with government records; these letters are sent to employers when a certain percentage of their employees trigger a no match notice. The government's recent set of requirements for employers receiving no match letters is being challenged in federal court.
