Alabama Immigration Laws:
There is an Alabama statute dealing with illegal immigration within the state that you and your company need to know about. Gaining a working knowledge of this statute is very important for your company. Unless your company is in compliance with this statute your company can not as a matter of law receive incentives from the State of Alabama. Further, there are significant penalties for noncompliance. This statute is known as the Beason-Hammon Alabama Taxpayer Incentive Act, Act No. 2011-535. Effective April 1, 2012, this new law requires all employers within the State of Alabama to verify the legal presence within the United States of its employees. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency has established the Alabama E-Verify Employer Agent Office to provide assistance to employers to comply with this process.
The Alabama Film Office recommends that you discuss the Act with your attorney and Human Resources Department.
We are happy to have your company in our state. Compliance with the Act by your company will allow AFO to assist your company in receiving all available incentives without undue delay or interruption.
