AS OF Thursday, Aug. 31 

E-Verify Posting Update: Background and Details

The federal E-Verify posting, issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency, updated Aug. 17.

It’s required for all who use E-Verify, including federal contractors, employers in specific jurisdictions (listed below) and employers who voluntarily participate in the program.

Updates include:

  • Revised content for message clarity
  • Redesigned layout
  • English- and Spanish-language versions combined on one posting

Posting Effective Date

Following the Aug. 17 announcement, it’s recommended to display the new posting as soon as possible.

GovDocs’ Response

Due to federal restrictions, GovDocs can’t sell the E-Verify posting as a standalone product. It’s free with the purchase of our federal Right to Work poster.

GovDocs Update Program clients (standard and federal contractor) will receive an updated Right to Work poster, which includes the new E-Verify posting, at no extra charge.

Employers (including GovDocs clients without the Update Program) required to display the E-Verify posting don’t need to purchase it from GovDocs. Copies are available through the USCIS E-Verify website.
