Your chances of facing an I-9 audit have shot up dramatically. Are your I-9 Forms and immigration practices up to the challenge? Do you know how to complete the brand-new I-9 form? Are you aware of the fines that can be assessed?
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has dramatically increased the number of I-9 audits conducted annually — from 250 in 2007, to approximately 1,500 in 2010, to 2,500 in 2011, and more than 3,000 in 2012. The amount of audits is expected to reach 3,500 in 2013.
The number is expected to grow. ICE has announced a plan to increase audits by 40%. It’s all part of the Obama administration’s “bold new audit initiative” to find and punish employers that violate immigration laws and fail to properly complete I-9s.
Newest development: ICE has established an Employment Compliance Inspection Center to expedite Form I-9 audits, allowing ICE agents to audit EVEN MORE businesses.
The result: Greater risk for your company, your executives … and you!
