DHS Postpones E-Verify Requirement (1/12/2009)
January 12, 2009
According to the Washington Business Journal, the federal government has postponed a requirement that mandates federal government contractors to use the E-Verify system to check the eligibility of their employees to work in the U.S. until February 20, 2009.
This mandate was originally supposed to take effect on January 15th, but was pushed because of a federal lawsuit filed Dec. 23 by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other business groups. The suit contends the government doesn’t have the authority to make E-Verify mandatory for contractors.
