After you and your client sign an E-Verify employer agent/client MOU, you must update the Client Company Administration page associated with your client’s E-Verify account to indicate that your client is a ‘Federal contractor with FAR E-Verify clause’. You must also enter your Organization Designation and update the Federal Contractor Category for your client’s E-Verify account with the correct information. For more information, see the E-Verify Supplemental Guide for Federal Contractors.
E-Verify employer agents may verify their employees in one of two ways:
- Enroll in E-Verify by signing a separate memorandum of understanding (MOU) as an employer. If an E-Verify employer agent is already enrolled as an employer, it must update its Organization Designation in E-Verify to reflect its new status of ‘Federal Contactor with FAR E-Verify clause’.
Add their own company as a client. If the E-Verify employer agent is already enrolled as a client, it must update its status on the Client Company Administration page to ‘Federal Contactor with FAR E-Verify clause’.
Yes. All of your program administrators and general users must complete a tutorial for federal contractors and pass a knowledge test before they can access E‑Verify. When E-Verify employer agents update one of their clients to ‘Federal Contactor with FAR E-Verify clause’, they must take a federal contractor tutorial.
No. You and your general users are only required to take the federal contractor tutorial once after you update the first client to Federal Contactor with FAR E-Verify clause. As is the case with other users, you may also later be required to take additional training after system upgrades or for other reasons.
Although prime contractors may act as the E-Verify employer agent, subcontractors are not limited to this relationship. Subcontractors may choose another E-Verify employer agent to use for E-Verify.
