In one of his first official acts after being sworn into office, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed an Executive Order (EO 11-02) requiring all agencies under the direction of the Governor to use the federal E-Verify system to verify the employment eligibility of their current and prospective employees. EO 11-02 imposes similar E-Verify requirements on state contractors and encourages agencies not under the direction of the Governor to use the E-Verify system. A copy of the Order, signed January 4, 2010, is available at http://www.flgov.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/scott.eo_.two_.pdf. EO 11-02 is effective immediately.

The federal E-Verify system is an Internet based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA) that allows participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees. While the E-Verify system is mandatory for qualified federal contractors, it was voluntary for state agencies in Florida until the Governor signed EO 11-02.
