Revised TN Mandatory E-Verify Law Applies to Employers with 35 or More Employees

As of January 1, 2023, Tennessee will require all private employers with at least 35 employees to use E-Verify and maintain E-Verify case results. Currently, Tennessee only requires employers with 50 or more employees to use E-verify. Critically, the Tennessee definition of “employee” includes and counts employees under the same FEIN – this means that employers that may have fewer than 35 employees in the state of Tennessee but have more than 35 employees under the same FEIN are subject to E-Verify for Tennessee employees come January 1, 2023. Except for federal contractors, federal law does not mandate the use of E-Verify, but states have passed various mandates.

DOL Recovers $352K in Back Pay for 653 Workers After Staffing Agency Misclassifies Them as Independent Contractors

Federal wage investigators have recovered $352,347, in back overtime wages for 653 workers of a Dearborn, Michigan staffing agency that assigned them to manufacturing facilities and illegally classified them as independent contractors. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division found Leo Staffing & Management LLC – operating as LTL Staffing and Business Solutions – assigned most of the employees to work as machine operators, welders and forklift drivers at Challenge Manufacturing locations in Walker, Holland and Pontiac. While the employees worked directly at the manufacturing plants, LTL Staffing maintained all employee records and processed their paperwork and payroll. Misclassification of employees as independent contractors is a major concern for the U.S. Department of Labor, and violations associated with misclassification are found all too frequently by Wage and Hour Division investigators.
