E-Verify Extension Again

The effective date of the Federal Contractor E-Verify Rule has been postponed once again. The new implementation date is now scheduled to be September 8, 2009, (extended from the most recent scheduled implementation date of June 30, 2009) and is the result of an agreement between the parties to the lawsuit filed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups challenging the rule.

The rule requires federal contractors with contracts for services or construction over $100,000 and a performance period over 120 days, to use E-Verify for all newly hired employees and also for current employees working on the contract. It was originally due to take effect on January 15, 2009, but has been postponed several times to allow President Obama’s administration time to review the rule.
