E-Verify Unavailable During Shutdown
Restaurant operators who use E-Verify during the hiring process are feeling an immediate impact of the federal government shutdown, as the Department of Homeland Security has announced that the online system, which businesses use to check the eligibility of employees to work in the U.S., will not be available during the shutdown.
This means that, for the time being, E-Verify users won’t be able to perform the following operations in the system:
- Verify employment eligibility
- View or take action on any case
- Enroll any company in E-Verify
- Edit company information
- Reset passwords
- Add, delete or edit user IDs
- Terminate accounts
- Run reports
