"Senate and House Clash Over Permanency of E-Verify," The National Law Journal
In this article that discusses the dispute between the Senate and the House over how long the E-Verify program should be in effect, Jorge Lopez of Littler's Miami office explains that these differences will be settled in some form before the program expires in September of 2009. Lopez sets out the ramifications of different scenarios. "From an employer's perspective, making E-verify permanent would not be a good idea because changes would be institutionalized, triggering costly and burdensome administrative headaches," said Lopez. "Even worse would be mandating that employers use the system to check the status of all employees, not just new hires," he said.
