U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that E-Verify is again online and operational.
Employers will have until February 11th to open cases for employees hired just prior to or during the government shutdown.
Regarding pending Tentative Nonconfirmations (TNC), USCIS instructions employers as follows:
[I]f your employee received a TNC and notified you of his or her intention to contest it by February 11, 2019, you must revise the date by which your employee must contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) or DHS to begin resolving the TNC. To do this, add 10 federal business day[s] to the date on your employee’s “Referral Date Confirmation” notice. Federal business days are Monday through Friday and do not include federal holidays. Give the revised notice to your employee.
