As I’ve blogged about numerous times, I-9s are nothing to mess around with. As with other government websites, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) launched a new website yesterday for E-Verify.gov. As most of you know, E-Verify is a voluntary program; however, employers with a federal contract or subcontract that contains the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause must enroll in E-Verify. E-Verify also allows all employers to use it to confirm the eligibility of employees to work in the United States. Most employers can obtain employees’ work authorizations instantly or within 24 hours by using E-Verify. Employers can visit the new website to obtain more information on E-Verify and Form I-9. Additionally, employers that have a Minnesota state contract for more than $50,000 must E-Verify all new hires who will perform work on behalf of the state.
