The Louisiana State Legislature has passed two laws aimed at deterring the employment of unauthorized aliens. HB 342 would prohibit state contractors from bidding or contracting for state work without first submitting an affidavit attesting that they will use the federal E-Verify program to verify the legal work status of workers throughout the project. It also would require the contractor to obtain sworn statements from their subcontractors attesting to the use of E-Verify. Failure to complete the affidavit or use E-Verify as required would cause the work to be terminated and bar the contractor from future bidding or contract work for up to three years.
