Due to the lapse in federal funding, the E-Verify website will not be actively managed. The website was last updated on December 21, 2018 and it will not be updated again until after funding is enacted. As such, (1) information on the website may not be up to date; (2) transactions submitted via the website may not be processed; and (3) there will be no responses to inquiries.
E-Verify policies have been implemented to minimize impact, including:
- The “three-day rule” for creating E-Verify cases is suspended for cases affected by the unavailability of E-Verify.
- The time period during which employees may resolve TNCs will be extended. The number of days E-Verify is not available will not count toward the days the employee has to begin the process of resolving their TNCs.
- We will provide additional guidance regarding “three-day rule” and time period to resolve TNCs deadlines once operations resume.
- Employers may not take adverse action against an employee because the E-Verify case is in an interim case status, including while the employee’s case is in an extended interim case status due to the unavailability of E-Verify.
- Federal contractors with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause should contact their contracting officer to inquire about extending federal contractor deadlines.
