E-Verify employer agents use E-Verify to verify the employment authorization of their clients’ employees.
Recommended Actions for E-Verify Employer Agents
If you are an E-Verify employer agent, follow the steps below:
- Update E-Verify profiles
- For your federal contractor clients:
Update each of your federal contractor client company profiles separately to designate it as a "federal contractor with FAR E-Verify clause."
- For your own company:
Only update your E-Verify employer agent profile to designate yourself as a federal contractor if you are a federal contractor with the FAR E-Verify clause.
- Ensure that you meet the tutorial requirement
Before updating a company profile to designate federal contractor with FAR E-Verify clause, inform the program administrators and general users of that profile that they must complete a federal contractor-specific tutorial and pass a mastery test before accessing E-Verify again.
- Review the latest E-Verify Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
Review the current MOU to ensure your company complies with the federal contractor-specific terms of the current E-Verify MOU.
