It’s Time to Create Your E-Verify Cases

Now that the government is back in business, at least for the time being, employers have until February 11, 2019, to create cases in E-Verify for employees hired during the government shutdown.

When entering these cases into E-Verify, employers should use the hire date from the employee’s Form I-9. If the case creation date is more than three days after the date the employee began working for pay, select “Other” in the drop-down menu. Enter “E-Verify Not Available” as the specific reason.

E-Verify has advised that:

  • questions about E-Verify unavailability should be directed to e-verify@dhs.gov
  • questions about Form I-9, email I-9central@dhs.gov
  • To contact E-Verify by phone, call 888-464-4216

You can read a copy of the Final Rule published in the Federal Register here: https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2019-01-25/pdf/2019-00101.pdf
