Senate Bill 529 is the "Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act" of 2006 (Act 457). Section 2 of SB 529 enacted new work eligibility verification requirements that apply to Georgia's public employers, and the contractors and subcontractors of Georgia's public employers. Under Section 2 of SB 529, public employers, their contractors and subcontractors are required to verify the work eligibility of all newly hired employees through an electronic federal work authorization program. The new requirements became effective on July 1, 2007.
As required under SB 529, the Georgia Department of Labor has promulgated new rules for the implementation of Section 2. The Department added a new Chapter 300-10-1, entitled "Public Employers, Their Contractors and Subcontractors Required to Verify New Employee Work Eligibility Through a Federal Work Authorization Program," to the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia. The new rules designate the "Employment Eligibility Verification (EEV) / Basic Pilot Program" operated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Bureau of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as the electronic federal work authorization program to be utilized for these purposes.
