New North Carolina Law to Require Use of E-Verify

North Carolina is the latest state to require that employers use E-Verify, the federal government’s online employment eligibility verification system. A regulation requiring employers with 25 or more employees to use E-Verify for all new hires was signed into law by Governor Bev Perdue on June 23. Implementation of the new law will start in phases, based on company size:

October 1, 2012: Companies with 500 or more employees
January 1, 2013: Companies with 100-499 employees
July 1, 2013: Companies with 25-99 employees

All counties and state municipalities will be required to start using E-Verify to screen new hires on October 1, 2011. According to the law, the use of E-Verify is not required of seasonal workers who work 90 days or less during a single year.
