As discussed in our prior post about the Georgia E-Verify laws, the E-Verify requirements under the Georgia immigration law are staggered according to company size. On July 1st, Georgia employers with less than 500 but more than 100 employees must start using E-Verify.
Businesses with less than 99 but more than 11 workers have an additional year to comply with the E-Verify requirements (they must start by July 1, 2013). Businesses with 10 or less employees are exempt. The largest Georgia companies with 500 or more employees were required to begin their E-Verify use and compliance on January 1, 2012.
