E-Verify is Bye-bye for Now

January 15th was supposed to be the deadline for government contractors to have to start using E-Verify to check the eligibility of employees to work in the United States. According to Federal Times and Portland Business Journal, the requirement has been postponed until February 20th due to a lawsuit filed by the United States Chamber of Commerce and four other business groups.

E-Verify has come under scrutiny by those on both sides of the aisle. Studies have shown that U.S. citizens and/or legal U.S. workers could be denied employment and a paycheck because the government database contains an error.
