eVerify:  Good News and Bad News

Topics: Immigration

There is good news and bad news regarding eVerify. 

Good News:

The President’s signature on the continuing resolution reopening the government over the weekend brought eVerify back to life.  eVerify is now back up and running and accepting employee information. 

Bad News:

eVerify employers now have three days to enter the employee information for every person they hired in the last thirty-five days.  Employers should expect slow/sluggish performance from the eVerify system and longer than normal response times when contacting eVerify for assistance while the backlog of data and requests for service are processed.

What it Means for Employers:

The partial government shutdown did not affect an Employer’s obligation to create an I-9 Employment Eligibility form.  All employers (eVerify and non) are required by law to create an I-9 form after employment is offered and no later than the employee’s third day on the job.  Employers should store I-9 forms in a filing system separate from other personnel records.
