The government shutdown has been impacting governmental systems since late last night.  What does this mean for employers and E-Verify?

With the government shutdown, E-Verify is unavailable and employers will be required to continue completion of I-9 forms to remain compliant with state laws; when E-Verify becomes available again, employers will have the ability to submit cases. Any new hires you make during this time will still be permitted to start working. If your E-Verify program is integrated with one of Snagajob’s hiring solutions, don’t worry, your information will remain safe and secure.

If you have any questions, please talk to your administrators in order to determine any business processes you should handle internally.  To find out more about the potential government shutdown and how it might affect you, check out this USA Today article to learn some of the basics.
