The costs of not complying with I-9 requirements are very high. Compliance is a bit complicated but not so bad if you know what to do. Unfortunately, many organizations do not take the time to learn how to properly complete an I-9 form. The forms are also changed every few years.
The presenter has conducted hundreds of I-9 audits.
The number of companies that were totally in compliance in 20 years of conducting I-9 Audits is a big fat ZERO.
It is vital that companies get a sense of their compliance picture, asking:
we using the correct Form I-9s?
- Do we and did we fill out the forms correctly?
- Do we copy the documents?
- Do we have to maintain a file of I-9 forms?
- If so, how long do we have to keep them?
- Can we still hire employees who do not have proper documents?
- What can we communicate to our new and existing employees?
- How do we fix our I-9 forms?
In addition to increasing the number of inspections, ICE has also nearly doubled the fines for incorrect I-9 forms to up to $2.300 per incorrect I-9 form. The amount of the fine depends upon the percentage of incorrect I-9 forms. So, if you have 100 I-9’s and half of them are not correct, you face a fine of over $115,000
