Appeals Court Denies Motion to Delay E-Verify
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals denied an emergency motion to delay implementation of the federal contractor E-Verify regulation. Accordingly, certain federal contracts and solicitations will now include a clause requiring use of E-Verify. Employers are required to enroll in E-Verify within 30 days of being awarded a contract with the E-Verify clause.
To prepare employers subject to the regulation, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released an E-Verify Supplemental Guide for Federal Contractors. The USCIS guide includes an overview of the federal contractor E-Verify regulation and instructions for enrolling in and using E-Verify. We are also available to answer questions on the E-Verify requirements for federal contractors.
