Verify Utah," the Utah Documented Employer Registry is up and running online for Utah businesses to voluntarily register that they have confirmed new employee immigration status through the federal E-Verify program. Per Senate Bill 251 sponsored by Senator D. Chris Buttars (R) District 10, beginning July 1, 2010 Utah law provides that a private employer who employs 15 or more people may not hire a new employee unless the employer is registered with and uses a status verification system to verify the federal legal working status of any new employee. An employer may voluntarily register with Verify Utah certifying that the employer is in compliance with that law. Registration with Verify Utah expires every two years.
