On June 23, Gov. Bev Perdue signed legislation that requires private employers with at least 25 employees and all county and city governments to use the federal government’s online E-Verify system to verify that new hires are eligible to work in the United States.
The law will be phased in. Counties and cities must register and begin using E-Verify by Oct. 1, 2011.
Deadlines for private-sector companies vary depending on the company size. Employers with 500 or more workers must start using the system by Oct. 1, 2012. Those with 100 to 499 employees have until Jan. 1, 2013, to comply. Employers with 25 to 99 employees must be on the system by July 1, 2013.
Information on E-Verify is available at www.uscis.gov/everify.
Note: Now is a good time to update your hiring policies to ensure you are asking for the right documentation to complete new hires’ I-9 forms. That way, the transition to E-Verify will be much smoother.
