Article Summary

Abstract

This topic describes how shutdowns work with E-Verify.

In the event of a U.S. government or holiday shutdown:

  • New cases cannot and will not be created in Onboard via web services integration.

  • Cases cannot be submitted manually through the E-Verify system.

  • If an attempt is made via Onboard, an error message will be displayed on the task page.

  • Each day the government is closed will count as a non-federal working day. Any cases that were being processed by E-Verify will be paused until the shutdown is over. For example, the Three-Day Rule and the TNC Contest Rule are not counted during the shutdown but will resume once the shutdown is over.
