AZ Employer Sanctions Law Update

The district court judge presiding over the case challenging the enforceability of the AZ Employer Sanctions Law issued a ruling today denying the employer groups’ application for a Temporary Restraining Order to stop the law from going into effect.  Absent an extraordinary turn of events, you should assume the law will go into effect as planned on Jan. 1, 2008.  Accordingly, if you haven’t already done so, you should immediately enroll your company in the E-Verify program and use the program to verify the employment eligibility of anyone hired by your organization after Dec. 31st, 2007.
