Tennessee makes effort to curb illegal immigration

State adopts law that requires employers to e-verify employees.

Tennessee has joined the movement to curtail the flight of illegal immigrants by passing its own employment eligibility verification law, according to a document released by Jackson Lewis LLP.

The Tennessee Lawful Employment Act (SB 1669, HB 1378), signed by Governor Bill Haslam on June 7, will require employers to use an E-verify program.
