If your organization uses leased employees, you may want to check out the company that's providing those workers.
Consider the negative press if federal agents raided your workplace and arrested the temps. That's what might happen if the feds move in on the leasing company, as they recently did in a Florida case.
The U.S. Justice Department obtained guilty pleas from the operators of an employee-leasing company for conspiring to transport, house and encourage illegal aliens to remain in the United States.
Jaroslaw Sawczuk, Jozef Bogacki and Pavel Preus will serve prison time and pay more than $950,000 in unpaid payroll taxes. They, along with several others still at large, brought in more than 550 illegal immigrants on tourist visas and leased them to U.S. companies.
The defendants told the companies that the employees were legal, and it promised to handle all payroll details. Instead, they failed to pay thousands in payroll taxes.
In announcing the plea agreements, Justice emphasized its intent to "restore integrity to the nation's immigration system by targeting violators and working to promote lawful hiring practices."
