The trend of states requiring the use of E-Verify continues as Tennessee will require private employers with 50 or more employees to utilize E-Verify after January 1, 2017.  While of not much consequence for Kansas employers (unless you have Tennessee employees), it is notable that the march of states mandating the use of E-Verify continues. It is also likely that any immigration reform at the federal level (whenever that occurs) will require employers to utilize E-Verify.  With the trends heading in the direction of mandatory participation down the road, employers should consider the pros and cons of voluntarily opting into the system in advance of any mandates.
