E-Verify and myE-Verify Services are Temporarily Unavailable
E-Verify will be unavailable from April 20 at 9 p.m. to April 22 at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern) as we implement system enhancements.
While E-Verify is unavailable, employers will not be able to access their E-Verify accounts to:
- Enroll in E-Verify;
- Create an E-Verify case;
- View or take action on any case;
- Add, delete, or edit any user account;
- Reset passwords;
- Edit company information;
- Request to terminate an account; and
- Run reports.
E-Verify Policies That Will Minimize Impact
We understand that E-Verify’s unavailability may impact employer operations. To minimize the burden on both employers and employees, we have implemented the following policies:
- Employers may not take adverse action against an employee because the E-Verify case is in an interim case status (such as a Tentative Nonconfirmation, DHS Verification in Process, or a Case in Continuance), including while the employee’s case is in an extended interim case status due to E-Verify’s unavailability.
- Federal contractors with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause should contact their contracting officer to inquire about extending federal contractor deadlines.
Available E-Verify Resources
For your convenience, several free E-Verify resources are still available.
- We encourage E-Verify employer agents to see the Supplemental Guide for E-Verify Employer Agents.
Form I-9 Requirements
The E-Verify outage does not affect the requirements for Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers must still complete Form I-9 no later than the third business day after employment and comply with all other Form I-9 requirements outlined in the Handbook for Employers (M-274) and on I-9 Central.
myE-Verify will be unavailable and employees will not be able to access their myE-Verify accounts to use:
