Legislation and Compliance Update: Appropriations law requires federal agencies to verify employment eligibility of new hires with E-Verify

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (H.R. 2055), signed by President Obama on December 23, includes a provision requiring the use of E-Verify for new federal employees. Sec. 629 of the law states:

None of the funds made available by this Act may be expended for any new hire by any federal agency funded in this Act that is not verified through the E-Verify Program established under Section 403 (a) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (8 U.S.C. 1324).
