Yes, petitions approved for the CNMI - only work categories of CW-1 (Nonimmigrant Transitional Worker) or E-2C (CNMI Investors) provide a Form I-94 that indicates this status. The Form I-94 with the foreign passport constitutes evidence of work authorization.

Additionally, employees may present any other acceptable documentation from the List of Acceptable Documents allowed by Form I-9 regulations.

The E-Verify federal contractor rule requires federal prime contractors with federal contracts containing the FAR E-Verify clause to require their subcontractors to use E-Verify when:

  • The prime contract includes the FAR E-Verify clause.
  • The subcontract is for commercial or noncommercial services or construction.
  • The subcontract has a value of more than $3,500.
  • The subcontract includes work performed in the United States.

Subcontractors who are only suppliers, however, are not subject to the E-Verify federal contractor rule.

The prime contractor should provide general oversight to subcontractors to ensure they meet the E-Verify requirement. A prime contractor may be subject to fines and penalties if it knowingly continues to work with a subcontractor who is in violation of the E-Verify requirement. The prime contractor must ensure that all covered subcontracts at every tier incorporate the FAR E-Verify clause at FAR 52.222-54. For more information on subcontractors, see the E-Verify Supplemental Guide for Federal Contractors.
