Employers that run afoul of federal immigration laws face stiffer civil fines starting March 27. The increases average about 25% and are triggered by a mandatory inflation adjustment.
Example: The minimum fine for knowingly hiring unauthorized immigrants rises from $275 to $375. The maximum fine for first violations rises from $2,200 to $3,200. The biggest increase: The maximum penalty for multiple violations rises from $11,000 to $16,000 per violation.
Remember: Since Dec. 26, 2007, employers should be using the redesigned version of the I-9. Download a copy at www.theHRSpecialist.com/newI9.
