South Carolina Increases Enforcement Activities Related to Employment Eligibility Law
In an article published Sunday, July 11, 2010, the Ashville Citizen-Times reported that the state has increased its efforts to ensure small businesses in South Carolina comply with employment eligibility requirements. To do so, the state has more than doubled its investigative staff by hiring 13 additional investigators to enforce the law. South Carolina lawmakers also set aside $2 million for enforcement efforts, up from $750,000 last year.
South Carolina requires employers to:
- Use E-Verify or another federal work authorization program to verify the employment eligibility of new hires, or
- Only employ workers who possess a valid driver’s license or identification card issued by South Carolina or another approved license.
