Trust, But E-Verify: A Cheat Sheet for Mandatory Employment Eligibility Verification By Federal Construction Contractors

Construction companies performing projects for federal agencies such as the Corps of Engineers, Veterans Administration, and General Services Administration are now subject to the new E-Verify rules summarized in this article. Under the new rules hiring is now more risky since the building trades may have workers who have immigrated to the United States from other countries and may not have properly documented immigration status. Further, project estimators and engineers may also have entered the United States from other countries, and should be properly documented. The E-Verify requirements flow down to subcontractors as well as general contractors on covered projects.
