Immigration Steps Up High-Profile Workplace Raids

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is stepping up its efforts to discourage employers from hiring undocumented workers.

ICE recently raided a million-square-foot Wal-Mart warehouse in Butler, Pa., netting about 125 undocumented workers who were employed in construction.

Employers raided by the ICE can probably expect a double whammy: a follow-up visit from Labor Department Wage and Hour investigators.

Bottom line: This action is more reason to know your I-9 rights and responsibilities, and to turn away employees who can't make the grade.
