E-Verify: A New Cost of Doing Business in Allegheny County?

Third Quarter 2011Articles Western Pennsylvania ACCA Chapter: Focus
E-Verify has been around since 1996, but only recently has its use become widespread. Initially intended to be a voluntary system to determine employment authorization, its use, whether mandatory or voluntary, by employers is growing. Indeed, Allegheny County Council recently passed an ordinance requiring that its contractors use E-Verify. This affects companies providing the County with services, working on any public buildings, or receiving a County subsidy of $100,000.
