I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

Georgia's E-Verify Law Expands to Cover Small Employers on July 1; By Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser

Rate this Entry

Georgia's E-Verify law, the Illegal Immigration and Enforcement Act (IIEA), will begin to cover employers with more than 10 employees on July 1, 2013. Thus, these small employers will be required to use E-Verify to check the employment authorization of newly-hired employees.


The law initially covered Georgia employers, with 500 or more employees, effective January 1, 2012. On July 1, 2012, it started to cover Georgia employers, with 100 or more employees. Private employers with 10 or less employees are exempt.


The Georgia law also requires contractors or subcontractors, even with 10 or fewer employees, who contract with a state agency to utilize E-Verify to verify the work eligibility of all new employees.  All contracts between a state agency and contractor must include this requirement, as well as those contracts between the contractor and a subcontractor.  If a contractor or subcontractor fails to comply with the IIEA, it is grounds to reject a bid on state and local public projects in Georgia.  When submitting a bid for a state or local public projects, a signed, notarized affidavit, attesting
to the contractor's registration with and use of E-Verify, must accompany the bid package.
