E-Verify for Federal Contractors Delayed Until September 8, 2009

The litigants in Chamber of Commerce v. Napolitano, have announced that for the fourth time they have agreed to postpone implementation of the FAR E-Verify final rule until September 8, 2009. The 70 day stay of the district court’s order was requested to allow the Obama administration to review the FAR E-Verify rule.

The delayed final rule would require the insertion of the E-Verify clause into applicable federal contracts, committing government contractors to use E-Verify for their new hires and all employees (existing and new) assigned to a given federal contract. Under the new applicability date, any solicitations that occur prior to September 8, 2009, would not contain the contract clauses that the rule would impose.
