Georgia leading the way with E-Verify

E-Verify are located in Georgia, which ranks highest of all 50 states in the program’s usage, according to new statistics released by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

  While the program is voluntary for most employers on the federal level, many states (including Georgia) have enacted state laws requiring employers to enroll. After Georgia (82,046), the states with the highest numbers of E-Verify users as of March 31 are Arizona (49,876), California (48,700), Alabama (43,944), Missouri (41,159) and South Carolina (40,211). Alabama, Arizona and South Carolina mandate E-Verify for all employers. The states with the least amount of users are Vermont (431), Wyoming (768), North Dakota (841), South Dakota (845) and Maine (866). Notably, California actually prohibits cities and counties from imposing any kind of E-Verify mandate. The E-Verify program compares information obtained from an employee’s Form I-9 to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.
