(Sacramento) –Assembly Bill 622 by Assemblymember Roger Hernández (D-West Covina) has passed the Assembly on a bipartisan 50-25 vote. AB 622 creates financial and civil penalties for employers who break the law, clarifies the “tentative non-confirmation” notification process for businesses and workers, and creates grounds to prohibit employers from verifying existing workers. “AB 622 is an overdue bill to protect immigrants in California,” Assemblymember Hernández stated. “Under federal regulations E-Verify should not be used on job applicants and existing workers, yet there are virtually no accountability measures or penalties in place for unscrupulous employers who abuse E-Verify.” Learn more about AB 622 in this Assembly Access video.
