ILLEGAL EMPLOYEES PROPOSAL

By Bob Katzen

A proposal making it illegal for an employer to knowingly falsify employment or citizenship documents of any worker was sent to a study committee by the Labor and Workforce Development.

Under the bill, violators would be sentenced to up to 30 days in prison and/or a $1,000 fine for a first offense; up to three months in prison and/or up to a $2,500 fine for a second offense; and up to six months in prison and/or 5,000 for a third offense.

Most measures that are shipped off to a study committee are never actually studied and are essentially defeated.
