Nonprofits with Operations in Florida

14 Jul 2023 8:16 AM | Anonymous

Beginning July 1, 2023, nonprofits that have operations in Florida should be aware of the new requirements imposed under Florida State Senate Bill 1718 which requires entities with more than 25 employees to verify employment eligibility for each employee using E-Verify, a federal website that uses Form I-9 to determine a worker's employment eligibility. Employers must keep all documentation confirming employment eligibility verification for at least three years.

According to the bill, in the future, employers will need to certify compliance with this new law annually on their first quarterly return of each year. It is expected that the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) will provide additional guidance on this requirement. 

Starting in 2024, DEO will send out notifications to employers that have failed to use E-Verify. Entities that are deemed noncompliant will have 30 days to become compliant or face penalties, interest, and/or possible employer license suspension.
