I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

Pennsylvania to be 1st Northeastern state with E-Verify Legislation

Rate this Entry

On June 30, 2012, the Pennsylvania Legislature passed legislation which will require public works contractors and subcontractors, on construction projects where the estimated cost is at least $25,000,  to use  E-Verify to determine whether their employees are authorized to work in the United States.  Violators of the new law are subject to penalties, including fines of $250 to $1000, warnings, and debarment from working on public projects from 30 days to three  years.   The legislation is awaiting signature from Governor Corbett, who is expected to sign it.  If signed, it will take effect January 1, 2013.


If signed, Pennsyvania would become the only Northeastern state to require E-Verify and the first to be implemented through legislation. Previously, Rhode Island had E-Verify through an Executive Order that required contractors, sub-contractors and vendors doing business with Rhode Island to use E-Verify for all new hires. But, Governor Chafee rescinded that Order in January 2011.


Check back after Governor Corbett signs the legislation for a more in-depth discussion of the new law.
