What To Do While the Government Is Shutdown


As many employers are discovering, several federal government services are temporarily disabled during the current government shutdown. One such service used by tens of thousands – and required by many -- employers across the country is E-Verify. Many employers are continuing to hire new employees but are uncertain about how to use E-Verify or what to do while they are unable to use it. Here are some practical steps to consider.

First, this is not a reason to choose not to hire an applicant; nor is it a reason to scrutinize an applicant’s documents more closely out of a fear that the individual may not clear E-Verify at some future date. Indeed, doing so may expose your company to liability for document abuse discrimination.
