Florida to Require E-Verify for Employers With 25 or More Employees in the State
MSK Client Alert
May 18, 2023
Beginning July 1, 2023, employers with 25 or more employees in Florida will be required to use E-Verify to confirm the employment eligibility of new hires, pursuant to Florida Senate Bill (SB) 1718, the new law signed by Governor Ron DeSantis on May 10. Independent contractors – as defined in federal laws or regulations – do not count as employees in determining whether the company is subject to the new law. Existing employees do not need to be checked through E-Verify.
