Applicability Date For E-Verify Federal Contractor Rule Extended


Posted on April 20th, 2009, by James Livesay in Immigration Law. Comments Off

The applicability date of the final rule requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to begin using the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) E-Verify system has been pushed back by six weeks to June 30, 2009.

The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense Acquisition Regulations Council (collectively known as the Federal Acquisitions Regulatory Councils) have published an amendment in the Federal Register postponing the applicability of the final rule until June 30, 2009. The rule requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to agree to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their employees was first published on Nov. 14, 2008, and went into effect on Jan 19, 2009.

The extension provides the Obama Administration an adequate opportunity to review the entire rule prior to its applicability to federal contractors and subcontractors.
