Effective January 1, 2008, Tennessee employers who knowingly employ illegal aliens risk having their business licenses suspended. Tennessee?s Illegal Alien Employment Act prohibits employers from knowingly employing illegal aliens and provides that if any state or local government agency, officer or employee has reason to believe that an employer is violating the act, the agency, officer or employee shall file a complaint with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOL). If the DOL finds that the employer has violated the law, the Commissioner of Labor shall order the regulatory board or local government to suspend the employer?s business license until employer shows that it is no longer in violation of the law. If another violation of the law occurs within three years of the first violation, the employer?s business license shall be suspended for one year.
