E-Verify is an Internet based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA) that allows participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees.
Georgia law requires that any private employer that contracts with a county for a public works contract must be registered for and use E-Verify. As such all contractors must sign the Contractor E-Verify Affidavit , all subcontractors must sign the Subcontractor E-Verify Affidavit, all Sub-subcontractors must sign the Sub-Subcontractor Affidavit. The county is only responsible for the Contractor E-Verify Affidavit. The contractor is responsible for all subcontractor affidavits and the subcontractors are responsible for the sub-subcontractors affidavits.
Beginning on January 1, 2012, private employers with 500 or more employees seeking an occupation tax certificate with the county will be required to register for and use E-Verify and to sign an E-Verify affidavit attesting to such. Private employers with 100 or more employees must be registered beginning on July 1, 2012 and employers with more than 10 employees must be registered beginning on July 1, 2013. If any employer has less than 11 employees, they are exempt from this requirement, but must complete an affidavit attesting that they are exempt.
