NC Bill Requires All Employers with 100 or More Employees to use E-Verify by January 2013

(Last Updated On: September 27, 2018)



The State of North Carolina has passed the Session Law 2011-263. This law requires most North Carolina employers to utilize the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify program to ensure that an employee is able to work in the United States. The law’s implementation date is staggered based on an employers’ total number of employees:  November 1st, 2012 for any business with 500 or more employees; January 1st, 2013 for any business with 100 or more employees; July 1st, 2013 for any business with 25 or more employees.
