Beginning January 1, 2023, all employers who have 35 or more employees in the state of Tennessee will be required to E-verify their workers and maintain case results. 

The state of Tennessee previously had an E-Verify law in place for 50 or more employees and this is an expansion of that law to include more employers in the state. 

E-Verify is a federal electronic database intended to aid employers in confirming the documentation provided by new hires to establish lawful employment eligibility is valid.

Worried about this new compliance regulation? A trusted staffing partner can help. 

At Staff Management | SMX and SIMOS Solutions, we implement E-Verify on a national level, regardless of state law.
