Q: If you are licenced in another state but hire in AZ how does the employer sanctions law affect you?
A: It is unclear how they will enforce this part of the law. However, as it reads right now, the new sanctions law requires an employer to use E-verify program, which is a federally run program. The E-verify program requires an employer to use this system for ALL employees if it uses it for one. So, the translation is that an employer would have to run all of his/her employees through the E-verify program. Having said that, there are some murmurings from attorneys and those who wrote the law that this was not the intent of the AZ sanctions law, and that the federal government will not require strict adherence to this part of their program for AZ companies. This is only a rumor at this point. Check with your employment attorney for direction on how you should proceed for your business and industry.
