8.1 Options for Verifying Existing Employees

At a minimum, your company must verify existing non-exempt employees who work on a federal contract that includes the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause. Before you enroll in E-Verify, decide whether you would like to verify:

  • Only those non-exempt employees working on the federal contract with the FAR E-Verify clause. With this option, you must track which employees are assigned to a federal contract that includes the FAR E-Verify clause to ensure that you only verify those employees working on the qualifying contract. You must also track which employees have already been verified through E-Verify.
  • Your entire non-exempt workforce.
