An “Immigrant Worker” section has been added to South Carolina’s Labor Law poster to provide information about verifying the legal status of new employees.
The South Carolina Illegal Immigration and Reform Act requires all employers to verify the legal status of new employees. The law prohibits employment of any worker who is not legally in the United States and authorized to work in this country.
The mandatory labor law poster (previously called the Payment of Wages poster) also includes sections on the state’s Payment of Wages Act, Child Labor and Right-to-Work provisions.
The new Immigrant Worker section states that employers must verify the legal status of new employees either through the federal E-Verify program or by verifying that the employee possesses specified identification.
