Government Contract Employers Ordered to Use E-Verify

On June 6 an Executive Order was issued providing that all federal agencies and departments that enter into contracts with contract employers use the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) electronic employment eligibility verification (E-Verify) system to verify the employment eligibility "of all persons hired during the contract term by the contractor to perform employment duties within the United States" and "all persons assigned by the contractor to perform work within the United States on the Federal contract." The Executive Order permits DHS and Attorney General to consult with appropriate department and agency heads to issue rules and procedures to implement the order. A final implmentation date has not been announced.
