ice to conduct 500 i-9 audits

Last week, ICE issued Notices of Inspection to 500 business worldwide. This follows-up the 652 Notices of Inspection that went out in June 2009.

When a Notice of Inspection is issued, an employer has three business days to present all their I-9s for both active and terminated employees who fall within the I-9 retention requirements. They will generally also have to present payroll records to cover the retention period (three years). The government then takes possession of these records, audits them and issues their findings, which may include substantial monetary penalties for any violations found.

Because the government continues their strategy to focus on auditing and investigating employers and holding employers accountable for their hiring practices, we encourage our corporate employer clients to contact us to discuss I-9 audit review.

Our firm provides expertise and advice relating to I-9 preparation, document review and training of in-house staff. We have conducted I-9 audits and training sessions for companies ranging in size from a few dozen employees to large multinational corporations, non-profit institutions and universities. We have recently conducted I-9 audits for a major educational institution with over 6,000 employees and for a renowned performing arts organization with over 500 staff.

Do not wait for the government to knock on your door! For further information on the I-9 services we offer, please click here.
