I-9 Recordkeeping: Completion, Storage, And Other Immigration Compliance Tips
|Date / Time:
Immigration reform has been on the government's radar for some time, and 2014 promises to be no different.
With increased funding for enforcement efforts combined with a public outcry for reform, Immigration and Customs Enforcement will be actively be on the audit trail in the new year, ready to dish out hefty fines for employers who are not in compliance.
Consider these examples:
- This past fall, the federal government launched a new wave of silent raids on 1,000 businesses suspected of hiring illegal immigrants around the country. The suspected employers spanned a wide variety of industries, ranging from restaurants to high-tech manufacturing to agriculture. This wave of raids was the largest since July 2009
- The Department of Justice's Office of Special Counsel claimed that a major retailer required new hires to provide more or different documents than what they had originally supplied as proof of their employment eligibility, even though the supplied documents looked genuine. As a result, the retailer will pay $175,000 in civil penalties. In addition, it will establish a fund to compensate those damaged by its non-IRCA-compliant practices
