E-Verify Affected by Government Shutdown

January 19, 2018 | posted in: Uncategorized | by

The federal government may shutdown as of midnight tonight. The threat of a government shutdown—last experienced in 2013—seems very real this time. One casualty of a government shutdown is that E-Verify will stop operating and employers will not be able to create cases during the pendency of the shutdown. If you are using an electronic I-9 provider, including for E-Verify purposes, they should be pushing down alerts about this possibility and what to expect.  Provided by Arnall Golden Gregory LLP.
