Florida and Indiana Pass E-Verify Requirements; Rhode Island Rescinds E-Verify Requirements

On January 4 Governor Rick Scott signed Executive Order 11-02, effective immediately, directing all state agencies under the direction of the Governor to verify the employment eligibility of all current and prospective agency employees through the United States Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify System. These agencies are to include, as a condition of all state contracts, an express requirement that contractors utilize the E-Verify system to confirm the employment eligibility of: 

(a) all persons employed during the contract and (b) all persons, including subcontractors, assigned to the contractor to perform work under the contract with the state agency. Also, agencies not under the direction of the Governor are encouraged to verify the employment eligibility of their current and prospective employees utilizing the E-Verify system.

Certain Indiana State Agencies Must Use E-Verify
On February 21 Indiana passed SB 590 requiring state agencies, political subdivisions, contractors with public contracts for services with a state or political subdivision, and certain business entities to use E-Verify. The bill also includes Arizona-like immigration including requiring law enforcement officers to verify the citizenship or immigration status of individuals in certain situations. The bill goes into effect on July 1, 2011.

Rhode Island No Longer Required to Use E-Verify
On January 5 Governor Chafee signed Executive Order 11-02, effective immediately. The Executive Order rescinds the Illegal Immigration Control Order that required certain state agencies and vendors to use E-Verify.
