Government Shutdown Will Stop E-Verify
By: Dave Fowler
As you know, Congress is trying to work through
budget issues and provide funding for the federal government to continue operating.
It has been confirmed with DHS that in the event of a government shutdown, E-Verify
will be impacted by a shutdown and will not operate until the shutdown is resolved.
If a shutdown occurs and E-Verify becomes
unavailable, employers must continue to complete Forms I-9 in compliance with the
law and then submit the information to E-Verify when E-Verify is again operational.
Employers using the TALX I-9 service need not worry. Employers using E-Verify Employer
Agents (formerly Designated Agents) should contact the supplier.
Hopefully, a government shutdown will be avoided
and E-Verify will continue to process. Just thought you all should know in advance
so you can plan.
