E-Verify Has Resumed Operations

E-Verify Has Resumed Operations

The E-Verify system has resumed operations after a closure during the government shutdown. At this point all E-Verify features, including the ability to resolve a Tentative Nonconfirmation (TNC) are available. However, processing times may be longer than usual due to the volume of backlogged cases submitted during the closure.

What Should Employers Do?

Employers should continue to complete Form I-9 and submit to the E-Verify system no later than three business days after an employee begins work for pay.

HIREtech’s I-9 Management platform can help organizations through the open and closure of the E-Verify system. The system automatically submits a case to E-Verify when an I-9 is completed. In the case of an E-Verify closure, all transactions are queued and the system pings E-Verify every few minutes to attempt to complete these pending cases. Employers can rest assured that E-Verify cases are submitted immediately when the system is accepting cases.

The Future of E-Verify

The government is currently funded until February 15, 2019. At this point it’s unclear what will happen with government funding or the E-Verify system thereafter. You can stay up-to-date with the latest from E-Verify by following our blog.
