Employers – Review Your I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Practices

As the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigations and audits increases each year, employers should review their I-9 employment eligibility verification practices for compliance. In 2012, ICE collected $13 million in fines – for violations in paperwork errors or missing forms, knowingly hiring or continuing to employ unauthorized workers and patterns of regular and repeated, intentional employment of persons not eligible for employment in the US. Wood and Lamping, LLP provides employers with the following services:

1. Initial consultation to ascertain how the employer completes and keeps I-9 records to determine current status of company compliance.

2. I-9 presentations on Best Practices for human resource personnel or those responsible for creating and maintaining I-9 forms.

3. Internal audit of employer’s I-9 forms to provide analysis of non-compliance issues to be addressed.

4. Responding to a Notice of Inspection from ICE/representation of company during an inspection.
