Thousands of small businesses in North Carolina must now use an Internet-based system to verify that new hires are eligible to work in the United States.

Under the state law, which went into effect Monday, every business with more than 25 full-time employees has to run new employees’ information through a federal system known as E-Verify.

An employer enters an employee’s name, Social Security number, address and date of birth into a system that matches it with other federal data.
