E-Verify Resumes Operation

February 04, 2019

As the federal government has re-opened, E-Verify has resumed operations. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has provided guidance regarding the resumption of E-Verify operations. Although all E-Verify features and services are now available, including the ability to resolve a Tentative Nonconfirmation (TNC), employers may experience longer-than-usual processing times as DHS works through the large volume of cases that accumulated during the government shutdown. Employers who participate in E-Verify must create an E-Verify case by Feb. 11, 2019, for each employee hired while E-Verify was not available.
