E-verify and the state of Georgia

We recently had an inquiry regarding the E-Verify Posting in Georgia.  When an employer uses the E-Verify I-9 system with the INS, they are provided the option to download and use the E-Verify posting.  Georgia's law regarding this has changed slightly over the years.  The following is a brief timeline of how the law has changed:

In 2011, Georgia passed a bill that requires private employers to use E-Verify to check the employment eligibility of new hires. Public employers were already required to, enacted in 2009.

On Jan 1, 2012, employers with more than 500 employees were required to use it.

On July 1, 2012, employers with more than 100 employees were required to use it.

On July 1, 2013, employers with 10 or more employees are required to use it.


If you do not download the E-Verify posting from the INS web site at registration, it is available from National Safety Compliance at http://www.laborlawposter.us/state/Federal.html
