What Employees Will Your Company Verify?
The federal contractor rule has minimum requirements regarding which employees your organization must verify. The rule also permits your organization to verify additional employees beyond the minimum requirements. As an institution of higher education, a state or local government, a federally recognized Indian tribe or a surety, your organization has three options.
Only employees assigned to a covered Federal Contract: Select this option if your organization intends to verify all of its newly hired and existing employees assigned to a covered contract only.
New-hires & existing employees assigned to federal contract: Select this option if your organization intends to verify all of its newly hired employees throughout the organization and all existing employees assigned to a covered contract.
Entire workforce (all new hires and existing employees throughout company): Select this option if your organization intends to verify its entire workforce, which includes all newly hired and existing employees throughout the organization except for exempt employees.
