SUPPLEMENTAL GUIDE FOR FEDERAL CONTRACTORS

8.2 FEDERAL CONTRACTOR ENROLLMENT STEPS

When you enroll your company, you will need to tell us some basic information about your company and agree to follow the rules of our program in the memorandum of understanding (MOU).

During enrollment, you will be asked, ‘Which category best describes your organization?’ You may choose from the following categories:

  • Federal Contractor with FAR E-Verify Clause
  • Federal Contractor without FAR E-Verify Clause
  • Federal Government
  • State Government
  • Local Government

If you choose ‘Federal Contractor with FAR E-Verify Clause,’ you will be able to perform functions in E-Verify that are unavailable to other users, such as verifying existing employees. However, if you choose ‘Federal Contractor without FAR E-Verify Clause’ or ‘Federal, State or Local Government,’ you must not verify existing employees. For more information on enrolling in E-Verify, please refer to the ‘E-Verify User Manual for Federal Contractors’ available at www.dhs.gov/E-Verify.

You will also be asked, ‘Which employees will your company verify?’ You will then select from the following two options:

  • All new hires and all existing employees assigned to a federal contract, or
  • Entire workforce (all new hires and all existing non-exempt employees throughout the entire company).

Note: If you choose to verify your entire workforce at the time of enrollment or when initially updating your ‘Edit Company Profile’ page, and you have not yet begun verifying your existing employees, you may change your selection to ‘All new hires and all existing employees assigned to a Federal contract.’ However, if you have begun verifying your existing employees, then you are not permitted to change your selection

If you choose ‘All new hires and all existing employees assigned to a Federal contract’ at the time of enrollment or when initially updating your ‘Edit Company Profile’ page, and later you choose to verify your entire workforce, you may update your ‘Edit Company Profile’ page to reflect this decision. Once you select ‘Entire Workforce,’ you are not permitted to change this decision once you begin verifying your existing employees outside a covered contract. See Section 3.2 for more information.
