On July 1, 2009, several state E-Verify mandates will go into effect for employers in Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah. Below is a quick summary of these new state requirements as of July 1, 2009:
All state contractors and subcontractors must use E-Verify if the contract is for the physical performance of services within the state of Georgia. Previously, only state contractors with 100 or more employees were impacted.
All employers with 100 employees or more must participate in E-Verify. This law will expand to include employers with 30 or more employees in July 2010 and all employers in July 2011.
All employers with 100 employees or more must either participate in E-Verify or only hire employees who possess or qualify for a South Carolina driver’s license (or other state license with similarly strict requirements). This law will expand to include all employers in July 2010.
State contractors and subcontractors must use E-Verify or the Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS) if the contract is for the physical performance of services within the state of Utah.
