Staggered Introduction of North Carolina E-Verify Compliance Dates Begins in October

North Carolina employers with 500 or more workers have until Oct. 1 to comply with the federal E-Verify law, under which they must verify the work authorization of each new employee.

Under legislation approved by North Carolina’s General Assembly last year and signed into law by Governor Beverly E. Perdue in June 2011, employers with between 100 and 500 employees have until Jan. 1, 2013, to comply with the law, while employers with between 24 and 100 employees have until July 1, 2013, to comply.

Employers who hire temporary seasonal workers for fewer than 90 days within a consecutive 12-month period and private employers with 24 or fewer employees are not required to use E-Verify, according to the North Carolina Department of Labor’s website.

Congress established E-Verify, an Internet-based system under which an employer can verify an employee’s work authorization status, in the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act.
