Effective September 20, 2012, American University is enrolled in the E-Verify program sponsored by United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS). Executive Order 13456, effective September 8, 2009, requires the use of an electronic employment eligibility verification system for federal contractors that hold contracts with the federal government containing the FAR E-Verify clause. As a federal contractor, the University is required to use E-Verify to supplement the Form I-9 process only for those faculty, staff, and students who are working or are assigned to an E-Verify designated federal contract.
All new and existing personnel who perform work on a designated federal contract are required to complete a new Form I-9 and to be E-Verified. This includes all current employees hired after November 6, 1986, who are performing work in the United States under a contract or sub-contract that includes the FAR E-Verify clause.
For more information regarding E-Verify requirements at American University, please contact the Employee Relations Team in the Office of Human Resources at (202) 885-2607 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
