       The Committee on Judiciary (Gibson) recommended the following:

    4  insert:
    5         (6) RIGHTS OF EMPLOYEES.—
    6         (a) An employee has the right to know whether an employer
    7  is using the E-Verify program. Each employer using the E-Verify
    8  system shall post, in an area clearly visible to applicants and
    9  new employees, a notice in English and Spanish which says the
   10  company is participating in E-Verify.
   11         (b) A worker has the right to know if he or she has
   12  received a Tentative Nonconfirmation (TNC). Upon receiving a
   13  TNC, an employer shall give a Further Action Notice in English
   14  and a translated version, if appropriate, with information on
   15  how to contest the TNC. The notice must indicate whether the
   16  United States Department of Homeland Security or the Social
   17  Security Administration issued the TNC.
   18         (c) An employee has the right to choose which documentation
   19  he or she presents to complete the Form I-9. An employer may not
   20  specify or request which Form I-9 documentation an employee must
   21  present.
   22         (d) During the verification process, an employee has the
   23  right to start and continue working, including while in the
   24  process of contesting a TNC. An employer may not terminate,
   25  suspend, refuse to pay for work completed, refuse to train,
   26  delay a start date, or take any other adverse action against an
   27  employee solely because the employee has contested a TNC or has
   28  a pending E-Verify case with the United States Department of
   29  Homeland Security or the Social Security Administration.
