E-Verify

Private employers with 25 or more employees must enroll in and use E-Verify. This includes private employers who have a contract with a public employer or apply for taxpayer-funded incentives.

  • Penalties: Starting July 1, 2024, employers might be assessed monetary fines per day after failure to use the E-Verify system three times in a 24-month period. Suspension and revocation of licenses (e.g., franchise, charter, etc.) is possible.

Additional resources include FAQs and an article in our resource library about Florida’s law.

Note to employers: Employers have requirements once enrolled in E-Verify, including but not limited to completion of Form I-9 and its verification (the Three Day Rule). Noncompliance could lead to significant civil fines. Some local municipalities also have E-Verify requirements.


Workplace Safety

Florida is a federal OSHA state that covers most private-sector workers but not state and local government employees.


Workers' Compensation

  • Coverage is mandatory for employers with four (4) or more employees. Officers are considered employees of a corporation.
