I-9 Recordkeeping: Completion, Storage, and Other Immigration Compliance Tips
From a compliance perspective, 2012 was a big year for ICE enforcement efforts and raids on employers for I-9 violations, employing undocumented or unauthorized workers, and much more. Consider these examples:
- Two Texas-based companies forfeited $2 million as part of a 2011 ICE audit, which revealed that 44 percent of their workforces were comprised of undocumented workers over a four-year period.
- In the fall of 2012, a Las Vegas casino agreed to pay $49,000 to settle a case claiming that it engaged in unfair documentation practices. According to the DOJ, during the initial employment eligibility verification process, the casino unlawfully required non-citizen employees to provide different documents and allegedly used the information to impose improper requests for documentation during re-verification as a condition for staying employed.
