Tennessee Lawful Employment Act Deadline

A new deadline is upcoming for Tennessee employers with 200 to 499 employees.  Beginning July 1, 2012, those employers must comply with the immigration law that addresses use of the federal E-Verify program for new hires.  Employers must check specific identity documents and retain them, or otherwise enroll in E-Verify.  The Tennessee law also requires the verification of work authorization for some non-employee workers as well.  Employers with 500 or more employees began compliance at the start of the year, with those having between 6 and 199 beginning compliance at the start of next calendar year.
