E-Verify Self Check Service Working Again after Government Shutdown

The Self Check service of E-Verify – a free web-based application that can be used by anyone in the U.S. over the age of 16 to confirm his or her employment eligibility – is working again after the federal government shutdown ended, according to a bulletin from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) available at http://content.govdelivery.com/bulletins/gd/USDHSCIS-904af4.

The E-Verify Self Check allows workers to check their own employment eligibility status in all 50 United States, as well as Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands.
