The Michigan House Judiciary Committee will consider two E-Verify bills tomorrow (August 19, 2009) which would mandate certain employers in Michigan to use E-Verify. House Bill 4355 would require certain employers who contract or subcontract with public agencies to verify the employment eligibility of new employees though the E-Verify system. House Bill 4969 would prohibit personnel agencies from referring an individual to a public agency for hire without first verifying the individual’s employment eligibility through E-Verify.
The Michigan Chamber of Commerce has issued a press release opposing the bills which can be viewed here. For more information on both bills, you can visit this summary link from the Michigan Legislature web site.
As previously reported, two Michigan counties have approved E-Verify mandates for local contractors.
