I-9 Verification During Government Shutdown

The following is a message from Heather Kidd, Payroll Services Director:

As many of you have noticed, the eVerify system is currently not available due to the federal government shutdown. We've received a number of questions in Payroll concerning the I-9 verification process that I would like to address.  

  • We must continue to complete I-9 verification before a new employee's third day of employment according to federal law.  
  • Though eVerify is not available, TALX / I-9 Express remains active.  You can continue to have new employees complete their I-9 online through TALX / I-9 Express. You can also continue to verify that you have reviewed their documentation in TALX / I-9 Express.  
  • You will not receive verification that the new employee's information has been processed through eVerify. Even though eVerify will not have processed the I-9 data, the employee will still have a complete I-9 form and will not be negatively affected--it's the timely I-9 completion that is essential.  
  • Remember that you can also revert to using a paper I-9 form should you have any problems with the TALX / I-9 Express system.  

Please call the OHR Contact Center at 4-UOHR (612-624-8647)  with any additional questions you may have.
