Federal Government Postpones E-Verify For Federal Contractors and Subcontractors
On January 9, 2009, the federal government postponed the January 15, 2009, deadline by which federal contractors and subcontractors were required to use E-Verify. Under the law, federal contractors and subcontractors were to verify the work authorization of all new hires and existing personnel assigned to perform work on future federal contracts. Because of a pending lawsuit challenging E-Verify, the deadline has been postponed until February 20, 2009. For more information, contact Michael C. Redman, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Hilary L. Velandia, email@example.com.
