E-Verify Requirement for Federal Contractors begins

September 13, 2009

After nearly eight months of postponements, the new E-Verify system goes into effect today, September 8, 2009, for certain federal contractors.

As you may remember from previous E-Alerts, current law requires that all employers complete an Employment Eligibility Verification Form (Form I-9) to verify a new employee’s identity and employment eligibility. The new rule requires that federal contractors enter the employee’s identity and eligibility information into the E-Verify system, an internet-based employment eligibility database. E-Verify must be used for work on all federal contracts awarded after September 8, 2009, that call for a time of performance that exceeds 120 days and that have a value greater than $100,000. Contracts for commercially available items are exempt from the requirement. Subcontractors must use E-Verify if the prime contract includes the requirement and the value of the contract exceeds $3,000.

The federal government initially planned to roll out E-Verify for federal contractors in January 2009, but issued a series of delays in response to a lawsuit filed by interest groups opposing the rule. Last week, a federal court in Maryland issued a decision upholding the rule’s validity, paving the way for it to go into effect.
