Fourth Circuit Refuses to Stay Implementation of Federal Contractor E-Verify Rule


The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit has denied a motion to stay implementation of the federal contractor E-Verify rule pending resolution of challenges filed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and several business groups. See Chamber of Commerce of the United States of Am. v. Napolitano, Case No. 09-2006 (9/9/09). Accordingly, the E Verify rule – which took effect on September 8, 2009 – remains in effect for qualifying federal contracts and subcontracts entered into on or after that date.
