SUPPLEMENTAL GUIDE FOR FEDERAL CONTRACTORS

9.4 UPDATING YOUR VERIFICATION PROCESS

The E-Verify federal contractor rule adds some new requirements and removes some of the flexibility that your company traditionally had in deciding how it uses E-Verify. Depending on how your company has been using E-Verify, you may need to make some changes to how you use the system. For instance, if your company has been selectively using E-Verify at certain hiring sites, but not others, you must begin using E-Verify at all of your company’s hiring sites.

Example: You only use E-Verify to verify employees at your Arizona locations. In your company profile, only your Arizona locations are listed. As a federal contractor, you must include all of your company’s hiring sites in your company profile. Also, because you must verify all of your newly hired employees with certain exceptions, you’ll no longer be able to use E-Verify on a location-by-location basis.

You do not need to wait to expand your use of E-Verify to all of your company’s hiring sites until you are awarded a federal contract that includes the FAR E-Verify clause. However, you may not sign up as a ‘Federal Contractor with FAR E-Verify clause’ or use E-Verify on current employees until you are awarded a federal contract that includes the FAR E-Verify clause.
