For a first violation of the statute, the employer will be placed on probation, and depending on the facts of the case, the employer may have its business licenses temporarily suspended. Terms of probation and suspension vary, and are based on the culpability of the business. If the court finds the employer knowingly employed an unauthorized worker, the employer will be placed on probation for 3 years. For an intentional violation, the employer will be placed on probation for 5 years. The business will be ordered to terminate all unauthorized aliens and report compliance to the County Attorney and to report to the County Attorney all new employees hired during the term of probation.
For a second violation during probation, the employer will have all licenses necessary to do business in the location the violation occurred permanently revoked. If the business does not have a specific location for their business, their general state licenses will be revoked.
