FAR E-Verify Regulation Further Delayed

with one comment

E-Verify is the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Internet-based system that allows employers to verify employment eligibility by comparing employee information taken from the I-9 form against records kept in Social Security Administration (SSA) and DHS databases. The rule mandates on most federal contractors and subcontractors a modified version of the EVerify/Basic Pilot program—requiring re verification of the workforce and creating vicarious liability for subcontractors.

The last agreed suspension extended the applicability date of the rule to June 30, 2009. Today, the litigants (including SHRM, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the HR Policy Association agreed to extend the applicability date to September 8, 2009, and asked the court to stay the proceedings further to allow President Barrack Obama’s Administration more time to complete its review of this rule.

Under the new applicability date, which is expected to appear sometime this week in the Federal Register, any solicitations that occur prior to September 8, 2009, would not contain the contract clauses that the rule would impose.
