A California-based production company, Hartmann Studios, has been slapped with the largest fine ever for Form I-9 paperwork violations. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) hit the company with a $605,250 fine for more than 800 violations of I-9 forms.

The company’s biggest mistake: a repeated failure to sign Section 2 of the form. Employers are required to complete and sign Section 2 (attesting that the employee’s documents have been reviewed) within three business days of a hire.
