States Introduce New Antidiscrimination and E-Verify Bills

American Staffing Association (01/13/12) Duffy, Anne

As state legislatures start to convene for 2012, new bills that could affect businesses are being introduced. Highlights this week include immigration bills in Florida, Kentucky, and New Hampshire that would require employers to verify the work eligibility of new hires through E-Verify, the federal government’s employment verification system.

Mirroring federal legislation that was introduced in 2011, California and Nebraska introduced bills that would prohibit employers and employment agencies from discriminating against unemployed individuals in hiring. Similarly, the bills further state that it is unlawful for an employer to direct an employment agency to take an individual’s unemployed status into account when screening and referring applicants.
