E-Verify Resumes Today After Government Shutdown

Berin Romagnolo October 17, 2013

The US Government has partially resumed operations.  Employers enrolled in e-verify must resume using e-verify immediately, effective today, October 17th.  The US Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) has issued the attached alert instructing employers how to resolve expired deadlines and problems caused by the government shutdown.  For example, employers have until November 5th to  input into e-verify each new employee who was hired during the government shutdown.  Employees who received a Tentative Nonconfirmation (TNC) between September 17th and September 30th can add 12 federal business days to the time they have to resolve the TNC.

Although the US Department of Labor (DOL) is supposed to be re-opening, the online filing systems are still unavailable and closed.  Thus, employers still cannot file Labor Condition Applications (LCA’s), the first step in H-1B work visa transfer and extension applications.  Employers also cannot file PERM applications, which is the first step in most employment-based greencard applications, and cannot file prevailing wage requests.  Thus, H-1B’s and many greencard processes are still on hold. 

We will continue to keep you apprised of developments.  Please contact Berin Romagnolo with any questions.
