9th Circuit Upholds AZ’s Employer Sanctions Law

Yesterday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the enforceability of AZ’s Employer Sanctions Law.  While the employer groups that have been fighting the law vow to continue the fight (perhaps by appealing the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court), you should assume the law will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.

AZ voters will be presented with an opportunity to vote for an alternative version of AZ’s Employer Sanctions Law on the Nov. 4th ballot (Proposition 202).  The alternative version is an effort to dilute some of the more draconian provisions of the existing law.
