AGG Partner Teri A. Simmons is quoted in an article titled “New parts of GA immigration law to take effect” that was published on December 16, 2011, on, the website of Atlanta’s CBS television station. According new immigration laws, beginning on January 1, 2012, employers with 500 or more employees must utilize a federal database called E-Verify to confirm the employment eligibility of all new hires, with a goal of deterring illegal immigrants from working in Georgia. Ms. Simmons, who opposes the law due to the extra strains it poses on businesses, warns that a lot of confusion remains regarding the new regulations, especially for smaller companies, who will need to comply by July 1, 2012. The article appeared in several media outlets including the Gwinnett Daily Post and Canadian Business.
