E-Verify Required for Federal Contractors

Friday, September 11, 2009  
Share |

A recent ruling by a U.S. District Court upheld the executive order issued by former President George W. Bush requiring federal contractors to use E-Verify, which was a voluntary system.  The order primarily affects federal contractors who are awarded a new contract after September 8, 2009, that includes the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause.  As of September 8, federal contractors must use the free E-Verify system, administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA), to electronically verify the employment eligibility of all new employees hired during the contract term and current employees assigned to work on the contract.  


On September 4, U.S. District Court Judge Alexander Williams, Jr., of Maryland, rejected an effort by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups to delay the rule from taking effect while a federal appeal is pending.  The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals denied a similar motion on September 9.  The plaintiffs are still considering an appeal.
