New Rule Requiring Federal Contractors To Use E-Verify Delayed Until June 30, 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 agree to use E-Verify to confirm the employment eligibility of their employees. The new rule will require federal contractors to use E-Verify by adding the requirement to federal contracts. On April 17, 2009, the government agreed to delay the applicability 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.
