- Enroll any company in E-Verify
- Verify employment eligibility
- View or take action on any case
- Edit your company information
- Run reports
- Among others.
In the interim, E-Verify has updated its policies to help minimize the burden on employers and employees.
Here are five important updates that employers should be aware of.
- The ‘three-day rule’ for E-Verify cases is suspended for cases affected by the shutdown. Additional guidance will be provided once the government is re-opened.
- The time period during which employees may resolve TNCs will be extended by not counting days the government was shutdown. Additional guidance will be provided once the government is re-opened.
- Employers may not take any adverse action against an employee because of an E-Verify interim case status, including while the employee’s case is in an extended interim case status due to a federal government shutdown
- The government shutdown does not impact an employer’s I-9 responsibilities. Employers should continue to process Form I-9 as required by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
- Contractors complying with the federal contractor rule will need to contact their contracting officer to inquire about extending deadlines.
