The federal government has announced a delay in the implementation date for two regulations that affect employers:
E-Verify. The rule will require certain federal contractors to use the online E-Verify system to check the work eligibility status for new hires. It applies to employers with federal contracts worth more than $100,000 and a performance period of 120 days or more. The deadline to comply, which has been delayed four times, is now Sept. 8.
Identity theft. If your organization sells products or services on credit, Aug. 1 is the new deadline to implement a written plan to detect and mitigate identity theft of consumers’ data. The so-called red-flag rules were set to take effect May 1. For details, see The Red Flag rules: Looming deadline for businesses.
