Employment Eligibility

Federal contractors and subcontractors were required to begin using the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ E-Verify system starting September 8, 2009, to verify certain employees’ eligibility to legally work in the United States. Under amendments to the Federal Acquisition Regulations (“FAR”), universities who receive federal contracts over $100,000 subject to the FAR must use the E-Verify system to confirm the employment eligibility of all new and existing employees who are assigned to the contract.

More information about E-Verify compliance is available at the Georgetown Office of Sponsored Programs website.
