Federal Contractor E-verify mandatory today

Despite last-minute appeals and lawsuits to delay its implementation, the FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulation) rule takes effect today. The rule requires contractors to use an electronic system (E-verify) to verify whether their employees are eligible to work in the U.S.

The E-Verify requirement would apply to federal contracts with a performance period longer than 120 days and a value over $100,000.
The rule covers subcontractors if a prime contract includes the clause. For subcontracts that flow from those prime contracts, the rule extends the E-Verify requirement to subcontracts for services or for construction with a value over $3,000.
