Alabama employers to E-Verify new workers

The law is being hailed as the strictest state immigration legislation to date.

Employers in Alabama had better prepare to toe the line. Earlier this month, Governor Robert Bentley signed into law the Beason-Hammon Alabama Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act (HB 56), which will require state employers to use the federal E-Verify system to confirm the work status of any new hires.

The law will take effect Sept. 1, 2011.
