    Virginia (2010)

    Virginia (2010)


    Update: e-verify Passes March 15, 2010 -
    The growing patchwork of E-Verify laws continues, with Utah and Virginia becoming the first states to pass bills mandating E-Verify participation in 2010. As with previous laws enacted in 2008-2009, these bills require certain employers to use E-Verify to check the work eligibility of new hires. Below is a brief synopsis of the new laws and requirements.

    A BILL to amend the Code of Virginia by adding in Chapter 1 of Title 40.1 a section numbered 40.1-11.2, relating to participation in E-Verify
    program.

    Bill- HB 737

    Mission: (support) HB 737

    Task: Call, Fax, e-mail your Senators/Representatives

    Message: (Example) Please craft your own

    To the Honorable Senator ___________,

    I'm writing / calling to ask Senator/Representative________ to please support and pass HB 737, which would require employers to e-verifiy and protect jobs for Legal and American citizens. E-verifiy has been passed in 10 states and 3 more by executive order. There is no excuse for Legislatures in Virginia with tools like free verification for businesses which I might add is 97% accurate, to require businesses to check legal status of its workers. Please support this bill and protect the residence of Virginia's jobs, especially at a time when unemployment rates are so high.

    Respectfully

    XXXXXXXXX

    Virginia State House Passes E-Verify Bill

    Tuesday, February 16, 2010, 3:16 PM EST - posted on NumbersUSA

    The Virginia House passed a bill (H.B.737) on Tuesday that would require agencies of the Commonwealth, public contractors, localities, and employers with 15 or more employees within the Commonwealth to check the worker eligibility of new hires using E-Verify.

    Employers that fall under the mandate that fail to begin using E-Verify face suspension or revocation of certain licenses.

    The bill, sponsored by Rep. David Albo, passed the House by an 82-to-13 vote.

    Ten other states have mandatory E-Verify laws with three others having Executive Orders in place that require its mandatory use. There are an estimated 7-8 million illegal aliens working in then United States with more than 15 million Americans unemployed.

    See a map of states with E-Verify laws in place.
