E-Verify Unavailable Due to Government Shutdown

Employers who rely on E-Verify, the web-based system that allows enrolled employers to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States, will be unable to access the system due to the government shutdown.

This is especially important for employers with federal contracts or subcontracts that contain the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause, as all such employers are required to enroll in E-Verify as a condition of federal contracting.

No alternative to E-Verify has been announced.
