Just got my hands on the proposed rule implementing the President's E-Verify Executive Order (thanks Naomi). A couple of items of note:

- normally, employers may only enter new employees in E-Verify; however, the proposed rule requires contractors to verify existing employees working on the government contract

- only contracts involving more than $3000 will trigger the E-Verify requirement

- subcontractors with contracts worth more than $3000 will be covered

- employers will have 30 days to enroll in E-Verify after signing a contract with the E-Verify clause in it

- agencies will have to include the E-Verify clause on any contracts awarded or solicitations issued after the rule takes effect

- the head of an agency has the power to waive the requirement
