Utah’s E-Verify law requires Utah employers with 15 or more workers to enroll in E-Verify. In determining whether or not an employer must enroll based on employee count, the employer is not required to count legal guest workers (H-2A & H-2B). Employers enrolled in E-Verify will receive an exemption from penalties under state law should a company using E-Verify inadvertently hire an illegal worker.
After enrolling in E-Verify, employers must also register with “Secure Utah,” a state agency. The state maintains a list of all those who enroll in the program, presumably to encourage the public to monitor which businesses follow the rules and to reward them with their business.
Verification for Public Contracts: Utah employers who have contracts with state or local government agencies are required to use the E-Verify system, regardless of the number of employees. This requirement became law in July 2009.
