The Courts and the Obama Administration continue to struggle over the proper role of E-Verify, particularly the proposed rule mandating E-Verify for Federal contractors. The Government has agreed with the litigants challenging the rule to delay implementation of the proposed rule until September 8, 2009, with strong hints that it will be delayed further as that date approaches. The proposed rule will not apply to any government contracts before the effective date.
