Correctly and efficiently determining an employee’s eligibility to legally work within the United States is vital for American employers. By not using the latest Form I9 form and/or not utilizing the E-Verify system, employers could be subjected to severe legal ramifications.
Recent news stories regarding raids of nearly 100 7-Eleven stores
by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents (ICE) investigating undocumented immigrant workers and ICE hitting 77 California businesses
with notice of inspections for audits of their Form I9 documents should reinforce how important it is to remain compliant.
In addition to these stories, the U.S. Department of Justice recently increased fines for Form I9 related penalties. Fines for document abuse will range from $185 to $1,848 per violation, penalties for failure to inform the government of continuing employment following E-Verify non-confirmation will range from $779 - $1,558 per violation, and penalties for unfair immigration related practices are between $461 to $3,695 per violation. So you can see that non-compliance can be very expensive.
