Form I-9 Compliance, LLC Announces New Service to Offer Seamless, Paper to Electronic Form I-9 and E-Verify Solutions for Federal Government Contractors

Service Allows Federal Contractors to Comply With Executive Order 12989 Requiring Verification of Employee Eligibility to Work in the United States by Jan. 15, 2009

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2008) - Form I-9 Compliance, a leading provider of software and service based solutions for responding to the Federal Immigration Reform and Control Act requiring employers to conduct right to work Form I-9 employment verification on new employees, announces a new capability that enables Federal Contractors to comply with Executive order 12989.

Effective January 15, 2009, Federal Contractors and Sub Contractors with annual billings in excess of $100,000 per year will be required to begin using the E-Verify system to verify their employees' eligibility to legally work in the United States. In a final rule published in the Federal Register, the Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense Acquisition Regulations Council amended the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to reflect this change. The amended Executive Order reinforces the policy first announced in 1986 that the federal government only does business with companies that have a legal workforce.

The new rule requires federal contractors to agree, through language inserted into their federal contracts, to use E-Verify to confirm the employment eligibility of all persons HIRED during a contract term and to confirm the employment eligibility of CURRENT employees who perform contract services for the federal government within the United States.

The Executive Order calls for a 30 day initial compliance window. This will not be enough time to build E-Verify solutions into the business processes of large organizations. The Form I-9 Compliance Solution employs a document Scanning, Indexing and an optional Audit process to seamlessly integrate existing systems with Form I-9 Compliance's Electronic error-detecting I-9 Form and E-Verify services on a timely and cost effective basis.

Form I-9 Compliance, LLC specializes in providing large organizations with Software as a Service (SaaS) based solutions to comply with Federal Immigration laws to use E-Verify. The service allows organizations to complete the Form I-9 process on-line utilizing an error detecting process with electronic signatures. The service then submits the employee information to E-Verify and the E-Verify results are returned in seconds. This reduces or eliminates liability, eliminates confusion, and with electronic access to I-9 information can generate reports to monitor compliance. Form I-9 Compliance, LLC provides customized implementations to ensure integration with existing corporate processes. With customers from the top 50 largest companies in the US down to mid size companies, Form I-9 Compliance, LLC is the leading provider of electronic Form I-9 services.
