Officials say every business in the state must enroll in the federal E-Verify program by April 1 to be in compliance with the law.
Homeland Security Director Spencer Collier says the law requires businesses to use the system to verify the legal citizenship status of new employees. And all businesses are affected, regardless of size.
While state legislators are considering changes to the law and courts have struck down key section, the E-Verify requirement remains in place.
Leaders have warned that businesses could lose their licenses for failing to abide by the law. Collier says Homeland Security is helping ensure compliance with the law.
