E-Verify Rule for Federal Contractors Will Take Effect September 8, 2009


On August 27, 2009, Judge Alexander Williams, Jr., of the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland upheld the legality of a federal regulation that will require many federal government contractors to use the E-Verify system to verify the employment eligibility of new hires as well as certain existing employees. The ruling in Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America v. Janet Napolitano, Civil Action No. AW-08-3444 (D. Md.), allows the regulation, published at 73 Fed. Reg. 67,651 (November 14, 2008), to take effect on September 8, 2009.
