Q : Do any organizations have exceptions to the E-Verify Federal contractor rule?
Yes. The E-Verify Federal contractor rule requires most Federal contractors to use E-Verify for all new employees, regardless of whether the employees are assigned to a Federal contract. However, certain Federal contractors need only use E-Verify to verify the employment authorization of employees assigned to a covered Federal contract. These include:
- State and local governments
- Governments of federally recognized Native American tribes
- Sureties performing under a takeover agreement entered into with a Federal agency pursuant to a performance bond
For specific instructions on exempt organizations, see the Supplemental Guide for Federal Contractors.
