E-Verify Announces Case Extensions
The government announced this week that with E-Verify back online, employers will have until February 11 to open new cases for workers hired during the shutdown.
Detailed instructions on the extension is available here on the E-Verify site.
In a nutshell, employers participating in the E-Verify employment eligibility system will use the date of hire from the I-9 when creating the new case. Choose the “E-Verify Not Available” from the dropdown menu to explain why you didn't open the case within the required three days from the employee's start.
There are also instructions for both employers and employees on how to handle Tentative Nonconfirmation notices. Following the procedure gets a 10 business day extension to resolve the TNC.
