Changes at Homeland Security

For months now we have been asking LLCs, Incorporated Businesses, and Partnerships to register with Dun & Bradstreet. Now, Homeland Security is wanting all employers including sole proprietors to register with Dun & Bradstreet.  Some of you may already be registered with Dun & Bradstreet. You can check to see at the following web address: https://www.dnb.com/duns-number/lookup.html

When you register, your name and address must match what is on your H-2A application.

Homeland Security uses this information to verify that you are a legitimate business. If the information isn’t available or wrong, they will issue a Request for Evidence that could delay your workers up to 3 weeks. If your are already registered, your information can be reviewed for accuracy at the following website - https://fedgov.dnb.com/webform/

Lastly, until your name is listed on Dun & Bradstreet, we will be asking for copies or pictures of your drivers’ license and a utility bill or invoice with your name and address on it. This information will be sent with your application for workers to Homeland Security.
