Florida's Labor Takes Hit... But What’s the Legal Solution?

Recently, Florida passed Senate Bill 1718 which has significantly impacted the labor for businesses in the state. As a result, here are a few takeaways:

  • SB 1718 requires all employers with over 25 workers to use the E-verify system.
  • E-verify requires legal documentation for each employee.
  • The new legislation takes effect on July 1st, 2023.

The fallout of this legislative change has been significant for many business owners, with labor leaving seemingly overnight. The outcome for businesses now short on workers can range from canceled projects, reported delays in service, and a drastically inflated labor market across many industries in the state.

SB1718 has caused many employers to lose access to the labor they need, and many are turning to new avenues to find cost-effective solutions: like experienced labor recruiters.

In Florida agriculture, construction, and the service industry have thousands of open positions. However, companies are losing thousands in lost revenue because they can’t get the staff they need. However, with AW Labor – thousands of companies have found the solutions, talent, and team they need to ensure they can keep the door open and the profits flowing.

Illegal labor is notoriously unreliable, especially in a climate where political changes can impact your labor force overnight. Earlier this year, vast numbers of undocumented workers fled Florida …leaving many companies without the labor they need in the busiest season of the entire year!
