Amends GS 64-25, concerning definitions for use in verification of work authorization and required use of e-verify, providing that the definition of employee does not included an individual whose employment is less than nine months in a calendar year and who works in the agriculture, agribusiness, landscaping, or forestry sectors, thus not requiring such an employee to be counted in regards to determining if e-verify is required (previously, exemption for not being considered an employee did not include employment type limitation).
