South Carolina Officials to Conduct E-Verify System Briefing

July 7,2011

Cheraw, South Carolina - The South Carolina officials will conduct a briefing on new state immigration law and the E-Verify system among Chesterfield employers on July 13.

According to reports, the state officials will discuss the new labor law and demonstrate E-Verify access procedure among company owners and executives at Cheraw County Public Library from 10:00-11:00 a.m.

The South Carolina legislators amended the "Illegal Aliens and Private Employment" law, stating that employers must screen new employees through the E-Verify system effective January 1, 2012. The state can suspend the business licenses of employers when they fail to comply with the new law.

Gov. Nikki Haley signed the amendment on South Carolina Illegal Immigration Reform Act on June 27, reports said.

Reports said the South Carolina legislators have to amend the immigration law to legalize the implementation of E-Verify system. The move was in line with US Supreme Court's decision on May to allow states to detect illegal immigrants using E-Verify system only.

Under the new immigration law, South Carolina employers must assess the work eligibility of new hires within three business days. Failure to fulfill such rule can mean cancellation of business licenses.
