A recent Louisiana law now requires all Louisiana private employers bidding on public contracts to verify by sworn statement that it
(1) uses the E-verify system to confirm that all of its employees in Louisiana are U.S. citizens or legal aliens,
(2) will verify the status of its new employees hired during the term of the contract and
(3) has obtained sworn statements from its subcontractors that requirements (1) and (2) have been also satisfied by the subcontractor.
Violations will result in cancellation of the contract, ineligibility for at least three years of other public contracts and liability for costs incurred by the political entity caused by the cancellation of the contract.
