Immigration Alert: Critical Changes in Arizona Employment Verification Requirements to Take Effect 01-01-08


As of January 1, 2008, all business owners with worksites in Arizona are subject to loss of their state and local licenses if they knowingly or intentionally hire undocumented workers. The state law also mandates the verification of employment eligibility of all new hires

using the Department of Homeland Security’s “E-Verify” program, commencing January 1, 2008. This new law represents a significant change in employment verification protocol and adds harsh penalties for employers who employ unauthorized workers, and we urge any clients with worksites in the state of Arizona to contact our office

immediately to discuss these requirements in greater detail.
