|Form I-9 Employer Compliance
In order to verify that a worker is eligible for employment in the U.S., employers are required to prepare and retain the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 for every employee hired after November 6, 1986.
Employers who do not comply with the I-9 requirements may be subject to civil penalties from $110 to $1100 per violation. For knowingly hiring and continuing to employ an unauthorized worker, penalties range from $375 to $16,000 per violation. “Knowing hire” and “continuing to employ” violations can also result in criminal prosecution and debarment from participation in some federal programs.
The Law Office of Jimmy W. Go can help your business ensure it is in full compliance with the I-9 regulations by conducting or facilitating comprehensive self-audits of existing I-9 forms; assisting with proper correction of I-9 form errors; creating a custom-tailored I-9 Compliance Plan for your company, including potential enrollment in the E-Verify program; and representing your business if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has issued a Notice of Inspection or has proposed a fine.
