Illegal Workers Employed in California, Texas, and Florida, Says Opinion Piece

Things have changed dramatically in three states over the years, and not in a good manner. I’ll give you some fundamental laws and opinions.

First and foremost, California. In California, can employers request an applicant’s social security card or only the social security number? They are, indeed, compelled to do so. That is a REQUIREMENT OF FEDERAL LAW. Any employer who hires you as a W-2 employee must fill out and sign an I-9 form. I know we did; California law bans employers from discriminating against and retaliating against employees in a number of protected classes. Employers must also give pregnant accommodations, equal pay, wage negotiations, employee access to personnel information, and whistleblower protection. E-Verify is optional for most California employers — only federal contractors and subcontractors must use it — but it is obligatory in some states. We were always using E-Verfy.

Texas came in second. The prohibition against discrimination based on citizenship or national origin does not apply to “a person or other entity that employs three or fewer employees.” As a result, the law’s anti-discrimination provision applies to any employer with four or more employees. Form I-9 is used to verify the identification and employment authorization of people hired in the United States. Every person who works for your organization in the United States must complete Form I-9. The form demands the employee to give you with documents proving their identification and eligibility to work in the United States. You must sign a declaration stating that the documents supplied are true to the best of your knowledge. What are the employee protections in Texas?Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere free of discrimination and harassment based on their race, religion, national origin, age, handicap, color, gender, or genetic information. As a Texas employee, you have the following rights: Minimum salary. Overtime…..sounds like Texas workers are losing out on something, you know what I mean.

Last but not least, Florida, because that is where I live. You might want to take a seat and get a drink. Employers must, however, follow compliance standards while utilizing E-Verify, and failure to do so can result in fines and other civil penalties. According to Florida law, all private companies with 25 or more employees must register for E-Verify and use it for new employees employed on or after July 1, 2023.Jun 2, 2023 Is Florida a business-friendly state? Employees in Florida have the right to quit at any time, and employers have the right to terminate employees at any time, with or without cause. Your employer, on the other hand, cannot dismiss you because of your age, race, gender, national origin, disability, gender, pregnancy, color, sexual orientation, or identity.

Because U and L drive services are considered 1099 (rather than W-2) work, drivers are not needed to file an I-9 form. As a result, there is no immigration status check while hiring.Jan 1, 2022 It’s no surprise that none of my drivers speak English; after all, Florida has 29.8% of families reporting using a non-English language at home as their major common language, which is greater than the national average of 21.7%…. Go buy yourself another drink.

True story, let’s assume I want to keep my 100 illegal construction workers by using a relative’s SS number or a fake one you can buy for $50 to $100, or a cousin who relocated out of the country and is now returning home due to retirement. Please wait a moment. DeSantis enacted a law, perhaps 25 or more? Never worry, I’m starting four new LLCs. So, I had a guy work for me, and while E-Verify worked properly, one of my other workers informed me that it was a forgery. So I contacted to make sure the name matched the SS number and was told, “Sir, we can’t give you that information.” He never filed income taxes or received a refund, and it took the government 5 years to send us a letter about it.

People will always find a way to break the law.
