Federal contractors have been granted a small delay until E-Verify becomes required.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently announced that the rule mandating the use of the E-Verify program for federal contractors has been delayed again. Federal contractors are not required to use the E-Verify system until June 30, 2009, pushing back the date by six weeks. The rule requiring E-Verify for federal contractors was first published to go into effect on January 19, 2009. As published, any contractor performing a prime federal contract that will be performed 120 days or longer and has a value of $100,000 or more would be required to E-Verify all new-hires and any employee (new and current) that will be working on the contract.
