Work authorization. Beginning Aug. 15, 2011, in addition to other methods, employers may use E-Verify to check on the work status of new hires. Penalties for failing to check a new hire’s work status have doubled, to $500 for a first offense and $1,000 for a second offense. For third and subsequent offenses, the penalty increases to $2,500 and a new penalty has been added—suspension of a license or permit to do business ranging from 30 days to six months and a $2,500 fine. (Act 402, L. 2011)
For bids entered into after Jan. 1, 2012, private employers that bid for public contracts must register and participate in E-Verify. General contractors must receive affidavits from their subcontractors that the subcontractors participate in E-Verify. Contractors that fail to use E-Verify may have their contracts canceled or lose their licenses or permits to do business in the state. (Act 376, L. 2011)
