E-VERIFY REQUIRED FOR FEDERAL CONTRACTS BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 8
Starting September 8, 2009, federal contractors, including cities that enter into certain federal contracts, must use E-Verify for their new hires and all employees assigned to any work on an eligible federal contract. E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that allows employers to verify the employment eligibility of their employees, regardless of citizenship.
(For more information please see E-verify Required for Federal Contracts in the March 12, 2009 , edition of the TML Legislative Update, and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Web site at: http://www.uscis.gov.)
