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.)
