Bush’s End-of-Term Rule-Making: Immigration and E-Verify

In its final days, the Bush Administration is pushing out new regulations which will mean fines ($500-$1000 per unverified employee) for companies that contract with the U.S. Government.  The rule is designed to ensure that all companies contracting with the U.S. government hire legal workers.  It is effective beginning January 15, 2009.

To comply with this rule, companies must electronically verify that all employees currently working on government contracts are legal.  Additionally, every new hire must be run through the DHS e-verify system.
