Summary: Effective January 01, 2012, amendments to the “South Carolina Illegal Immigration and Reform Act”, signed into law by Governor Nikki Haley, require all employers to use the E-Verify system to verify the legal status of all new hires.

A first offense of non-compliance by a private employer will result in the employer being placed on probation for a period of one year, during which the private employer must submit quarterly reports to the state government demonstrating compliance with the law. An additional violation within three year’s must result in the suspension of the private employer’s license(s) for at least 10 days. A third violation by a private employer may result in business license revocation.
