E-Verify Is Shut Down – I-9s are a GO!

Due to the federal government shutdown, the E-Verify system is unavailable. All NC employers with 25+ employees must use the E-verify system.

Here is what you need to know in a nutshell:

  • The “3-day rule” for creating E-Verify cases is suspended 
  • The time period during which employees may resolve TNCs is extended
  • Employers may not take adverse action against an employee because the E-Verify case is in an interim case status
  • Once the shutdown is over, you will need to enter all employees that were hired during this period
  • Form I-9s must continue to be completed as usual – they are not suspended
