Before the Government Comes Knocking: Benefits of Conducting an I-9 Self Audit
As we have been reporting over the last year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has focused substantial resources on investigating employers for alleged worksite violations. The investigations typically involve a review of the employer's I-9 forms, which employers must use to verify the work authorization of any employee hired after November 6, 1986. Based on recent reports of fines ranging from a few thousand to more than one million dollars (and even imprisonment of business owners in some cases), it never has been a better time for organizations to consider a proactive self audit of their I-9 protocols and documents.
This webinar will discuss the benefits of conducting an I-9 self audit and why employers should review their current documentation process now - rather than wait until ICE is knocking on the door.
