Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a law that will require some private employers to verify employment eligibility of new hires.
Additional Information: E-Verify is an online tool operated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which allows employers to electronically verify employment eligibility of new hires in the U.S. based on information from the Social Security Administration and DHS records. Employers who use the E-Verify system in good faith are generally presumed to have not knowingly hired unauthorized workers. More information regarding E-Verify is available here.
BAL Analysis: The new E-Verify law in Florida is expected to face legal challenges, and its impact on various aspects of employment and immigration remains uncertain. However, employers subject to the new law should be prepared to implement the E-Verify system by July 1, 2023, if the law’s implementation proceeds as scheduled.
