Applicability Date for E-Verify Federal Contractor Rule Extended ... Again
May 8th, 2009
The final rule requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to begin electronically verifying the employment eligibility of their employees has again been pushed back -- this time to September 8, 2009
This rule was first published on November 14, 2008 and was originally scheduled to go into effect on January 19, 2009, but has been postponed several times. Most recently, an amendment was published in the Federal Register on April 17, 2009 postponing the applicability of the final rule for another six weeks. The applicability date of the final rule requiring federal contractors and subcontractors to begin using US CIS' E-Verify system has now been pushed back to September 8, 2009. This extension is designed to provide the Obama Administration an adequate opportunity to review the entire rule prior to its applicability to federal contractors and subcontractors.
