Doug Kauffman Shares Insights with Human Resource Executive Regarding the Social Security Administration’s Mailing of No-Match Letters to Employers

Doug Kauffman, partner in the firm’s Birmingham office and member of the Labor & Employment Practice, was quoted in the Human Resource Executive on July 24, 2019, regarding the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) mailing of no-match letters. These letters notify companies of an employee with a name and Social Security Number that do not align with records held by the SSA. In the article, Doug shared that while there is no evidence linking these letters to the current administration’s crackdown on immigration, he “would not be surprised” if there is a correlation. He also discussed the importance of employers acknowledging a no-match letter and taking the necessary steps to investigate and remedy the issue, if possible. 

Doug assists employers manage their most valuable assets - their employees. For over 20 years he has counseled large and small employers, helping them stay up to date on the law, regulations, and best practices with respect to employment compliance. He also handles complaints or audits by various government agencies, such as the EEOC, the Department of Labor, and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and he litigates all employment issues in court.
