Perspective: A WIS Editorial - E-Verify

Posted: Updated:

With the New Year comes a new law that will impact every business in South Carolina.

 As part of the new South Carolina Illegal Immigration and Reform Act all employers are required to enroll in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's E-Verify system. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States

If you own or manage a business, with one employee or thousands of workers, you must make sure that you are following the new guidelines. Otherwise you could face an audit and serious consequences for not following the rules.  Whether you see this as more red tape or just good business practice, you really don't have a choice, so go to the E-verify website below and educate yourself about these new hiring guidelines.

That's my perspective.  Let me hear from you
