ICE Audit Notifications Going Out…

Filed under: Employment Law,General HR Buzz,Hiring & Jobs8:58 am

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is preparing to serve 1,000 I-9 audit notifications as the beginning of a new push to hold employers accountable for verification of workers’ authorization.   This year, ICE announced it has hired auditors dedicated to the I-9 audits, and word on the street is that they may be fining for seemingly more minor errors than in previous audits.  Additionally, ICE is issuing some hefty fines for failure to keep proper I-9 records and for using electronic I-9 systems that did not work as they should. If you obtain an outside audit, ICE has commented publicly that you may do much better in an audit as compared to companies who have only internal audits. 

So what can you do?  DHS just published a new version of its 69-page “Handbook for Employers” about how to complete Form I-9. You can find this booklet on-line in a downloadable format at http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/m-274.pdf.
