Form I-9 Archives

I-9 Audit Notices on the Rise

With all the furor in the media with regard to the "Border Wall" and United States immigration policy, Employers are losing sight of an even more prominent threat. The Homeland Security Investigations Unit (HSI), which is the investigative agency within the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Group and responsible for Form I-9 compliance, has ratcheted up Inspection Notices for Employers. In point of fact, since the beginning of the current Government Fiscal Year, the HSI has served well over 2,800 Notices of Inspection and made thirty-two (32) arrests in connection with onsite Form I-9 compliance. It should be noted that in the last Fiscal Year, the same entity initiated 1,360 I-9 Audits and obviously that is showing a tremendous increase. While the Border Wall and overall immigration policy may eventually impact the Federal Budget and tax dollars, a more important concern for Employers is the HSI "knocking on the door right now!"

Paperwork Is Never Done

Over my seventy-two (72) years of life, there are a number of constants that have existed. One of them is "no job is complete until the paperwork is done". This is certainly true with the United States Government and its numerous forms (i.e. new EEOC Forms; new OSHA Forms, etc.).
