Here is some preliminary information about what to expect while the government shutdown is in effect:

E-VERIFY -

The E-Verify system is not accepting cases and will cease processing pending cases for the duration of the shutdown. Your employees who have E-Verify accounts should be receiving an automated message stating that E-Verify is unavailable. This message states that the “three-day rule,” which requires an E-Verify case for new employees to be submitted within three days of the first date on the payroll, is suspended for the duration of the shutdown. This message also states that the 8-day period for employees to resolve Tentative Non-Confirmations will be extended. Days the government shutdown is in effect will not count.

We recommend keeping a copy of this message in the file for each employee for whom you would normally start a new E-Verify case or who has a pending TNC for the duration of the shutdown. Bear in mind that Form I-9 procedures should continue normally during this time.
