AN ACT TO AMEND VARIOUS STATUTES RELATED TO IMMIGRATION.
Amends the definitions in GS 64-25 concerning E-Verify as follows. Amends the definition of employee to remove the exclusion from the term for individuals whose term of employment is less than nine months in a calendar year; adds that the term does not include a farm worker, an independent contractor, or an individual who provides domestic service in a private home that is sporadic, irregular, or intermittent. Adds and defines the terms farm worker and independent contractor.
Repeals GS 15A-311(c), which allowed law enforcement to use an identity document issued or created by any person, organization, county, city, or other local authority in determining the identity or residency of a person when such documents are the only available documents that indicate identity or residency.
Directs the Department of Labor to include on the required labor law posters information regarding employer E-Verify responsibilities pursuant to GS 64-26 and GS 143-133.3 as well as complaint filing information for E-Verify violations. Effective July 1, 2016.
Appropriates $10,000 from the General Fund to the Department of Labor for 2016-17 for production costs of the required labor law posters.
Effective October 1, 2016.
