Private employers with 150 or more workers are required to enroll in and use E-Verify or another status verification system.

  • Penalties: Fines could be assessed for first and second violations on employers who knowingly employ unauthorized aliens. Subsequent violations might be met with revocation of certain state licenses, while fines could be assessed if such licenses are not held.

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.
