If a company is already enrolled in E-Verify as a federal contractor with a federal contract containing the FAR E-Verify clause and receives a subsequent federal contract that also contains the FAR E-Verify clause, the company must continue to create E-Verify cases for newly hired employees within three business days of their start date. However, the company will have 90 days from the award date of the subsequent contract to create an E-Verify case for existing non-exempt employees working on the subsequent contract.

The additional 90-day period to verify existing employees does not apply to companies that had chosen to verify their entire workforce when they entered into the initial federal contract with the FAR E-Verify clause. Also, if they had not already done so, companies do not receive an additional 30 days to enroll or update their company profiles since they enrolled as a ‘Federal contractor with FAR E-Verify clause’ when the initial federal contract containing the FAR E-Verify clause was awarded.
