Employment: Effective Date For Federal Contractor E-Verify Requirements Delayed Again, New Effective Date Is September 8, 2009
The new rule is a result of an Executive Order President George W. Bush amended to require employers who contract with the federal government to use E-Verify to confirm the employment eligibility of their employees. On June 5, 2009, the government announced it would delay the effective date of the new rule “in order to permit the new Administration an adequate opportunity to review this rule.” Accordingly, employers who contract with the federal government are not required to use E-Verify until the new rule becomes effective and the applicable contract language is changed. This is the second time the effective date of the new rule has been delayed.
We will keep you updated on any further changes.
