the amount of $10,463,987.
• The penalty for failing to comply with Form

What is E-Verify?
• An internet-based system operated by the
Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in
partnership with the Social Security Administration
(SSA) that allows employers to verify the
employment authorization of employees.
E-Verify and UCF
• HR currently inputs the information from
the I-9s of all new hires paid under
government contracts and I-9s of existing
employees paid under government
contracts through E-Verify.
E-Verify Executive Orders
• Federal Executive Order: Effective September 8th 2009
– AKA E-Verify Federal Contractor Rule or FAR (Federal Acquisition
Regulation) Final Rule
– All new hires and existing employees paid under Federal Contracts
must be run through E-Verify to verify work authorization.
• State Executive Order: Effective May 27th, 2011
– All new hires and existing employees paid under State Contracts must
be run through E-Verify to verify work authorization.
Provost Decided that UCF Will
E-Verify all New Hires in 2012
• ISC’s and Departments’ concern that F-1
students be given the 17 month OPT
extension when eligible.
International F-1 Students
• When international students under F-1 Status graduate, they
are eligible for 12 months of OPT (Optional Practical Training).
• OPT is temporary employment that is directly related to a F-1
student’s major area of study.
• International Students apply for an EAD (Employment
Authorization Card) through USCIS.
How does that relate to E-Verify?
E-Verify and STEM
• F-1 students who receive science, technology,
engineering, and mathematic (STEM) degrees are
eligible for an additional 17-month OPT extension
ONLY if their employer inputs ALL NEW HIRES
through E-Verify in addition to employees paid from
Government Contracts.
