INFORMATION ABOUT E-VERIFY
Senate Bill 529, the “Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act” of 2006, established a new work eligibility verification requirements for Fulton County and its contractors and subcontractors, effective July 1, 2007. The Act further prohibited the provision of certain services or benefits to any adult without a verification of their immigration status. Additionally, GSCIA required the County to make a reasonable effort to verify the immigration status of any foreign national charged with and jailed for a felony or DUI.
House Bill 2 requires counties to register and participate in the federal work authorization program for all new employees and requires that in order for all bids for services to be considered, that the bid shall include a signed, notarized affidavit from contractor and any subcontractors. It also requires counties to report via the Systematic Aliens Verification of Entitlement (SAVE) program for non-US citizens who apply for a public benefit defined under the law.
The law further requires the County to identify and provide a list of benefits provided via the Public Benefit Reporting System (PBRS) of the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
In compliance with Georgia Law, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners on December 2, 2009, established Policies and Procedures for the implementation of the requirements of the Act. [Click here for County Policy 100-28]
