Georgia E-Verify Law Expands in 2012
Georgia E-Verify Requirement -- Starting January 1, Georgia businesses with 500 employees or more will be required to check their employees using E-verify, the federal governments online employee verification tool. The requirement takes place in phases: starting July 1, businesses of 100 or more must use E-verify and by January 2013, all businesses with more than 10 employees are required to use the system. Those with 10 or fewer employees are exempt.
Verification is enforced by the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts; the state auditor will take random audits of businesses. Employers are required to test all new employees, including temporary workers.
Some businesses, including government offices, have been using E-verify for more than a year. Get more information on how we can guide you in setting up your company with E-Verify and a digital storage solution.
Georgia passes immigration bill similar to Arizona's
On April 13 2011, ATLANTA â€” During their frantic final day Thursday, Georgia lawmakers passed a tough bill cracking down on illegal immigration, clearing the way for Gov. Nathan Deal to sign it. A major sticking point in the debate was whether private employers should be required to use a federal database called E-Verify to check the immigration status of new hires before they could get a business license or other papers needed to operate. Groups representing businesses, agriculture, restaurant owners and others had urged lawmakers to eliminate the E-Verify mandate, saying it would be too burdensome for employers.
Ramsey has said repeatedly that E-Verify is important because jobs drive illegal immigrants to Georgia. The Senate added wording Thursday that retains the E-Verify requirement for private businesses with more than 10 employees but says any company found to have committed a ''good faith violation'' of the mandate would have a 30-day period to come into compliance. >><<
Simplify E-Verify Efficiency for Employee Verification
ALERT: DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT (ICE) STRATEGIC PLAN FY 2010-2014
Breaking News - OBJECTIVE 3.2 - Create a Culture of Employer Compliance The opportunity to work in the United States motivates many to seek illegal entry. Therefore, enforcing the immigration-related employment laws is a critical component of border security. To create a culture
of compliance among employers, ICE will use the following two-pronged strategy: (1) aggressive criminal and civil enforcement against those employers who knowingly violate the law; and (2) continued implementation of programs, such as E-Verify and ICE's IMAGE program, to help employers comply. Criminal investigations will increasingly focus on employers who abuse and exploit workers or otherwise engage in egregious conduct. To support a meaningful civil audit program, ICE will hire additional auditors and centralize some auditing functions. Through the "I E-Verify" campaign, ICE will work with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to increase public support for companies that use compliance tools. Finally, ICE will seek better statutory tools to address illegal employment.
