Georgia E-Verify Reminder

12.06.2011

On April 14, 2011, the Georgia Legislature passed House Bill 87 which “creates new requirements for many Georgia businesses to ensure new hires are eligible to work in the United States”.

This is a reminder that among the new regulations is a requirement for Georgia businesses with more than 10 employees to use the federal E-verify program, which helps companies confirm whether their new hires are eligible to work in the United States. The schedule is:

  • January 1, 2012, companies with 500 or more employees.
  • July 1, 2012, companies with 100 - 500 employees.
  • July 1, 2013, companies with 10 or more employees.
