We are a GA-based company. I just hired my 10th employee; several of our employees reside outside of GA. Am I required to report all 10 through GA E-Verify? 2018-02-20T12:43:58+00:00

Actually, you are not required to report any of these 10 employees through E-Verify.

Georgia law requires an employer to enroll in E-Verify, a federal program, when the employer has more than 10 full-time employees. Their location is not relevant.

The operative date for counting employees is January 1 of any year. If, on January 1 an employer has more than 10 full-time employees, the employer is required to enroll in E-Verify and participate according to the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding; the agreement that the employer signs to participate in E-Verify.

Those terms require the employer to verify all new hires going forward and prohibits the employer from verifying existing employees (there are different rules for federal contractors). That’s why you would not “report” any of the 10 current employees in E-Verify; they were hired before you enrolled (if you did today).

If you are already enrolled in E-Verify, you must verify all new hires, regardless of the total number of employees and regardless of their location.
