Independent Contractor Opportunity Announcement: Haitian-American Community
The Children’s Trust (The Trust) seeks the services of an independent contractor to provide community engagement support, primarily to the Haitian-American community in Miami-Dade County. This independent contractor will help The Trust expand and enhance the overall capacity of its public policy and community engagement department.
Effective January 1, 2021, section 448.095(e) of the Florida Statutes requires all public employers, contractors and subcontractors, including The Children’s Trust providers, to use the E-Verify system to establish the authorization of new employees, including all new subcontractors and professional services consultants, to work in this country. Providers must also obtain and keep an affidavit from its subcontractors affirming that the subcontractors do not employ, contract or subcontract with any individuals who are not authorized to work in the US.
Providers who have been found to violate the statute will have their agreement or contract terminated, and not renewed for at least a year, per Florida Statutes. If a provider’s subcontractor has violated the statute, the provider must immediately terminate the subcontractor.
The E-Verify system is Internet-based and operated by the Department of Homeland Security that verifies the employment eligibility of employees. For more information on E-Verify and 448.095(e), F.S. (2020), click here.
