Fines as a result of I-9 audits are dramatically up the past year.
From October 1, 2017-May 4, 2018, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted 2,282 Form I-9 audits, up from 1,360 audits from October 1, 2016-September 30, 2017. Given this dramatic increase, employers should take a moment to ensure that their Form I-9 compliance practices meet federal requirements. Businesses that fail to comply with these requirements are subject to penalties of up to $2,236 per violation.
4 Quick Form I-9 Compliance Tips
- All U.S. employers generally must fill out and keep a Form I-9 for every person they hire for employment in the United States, as long as the person works for pay or other benefits.
- Newly hired employees must complete and sign Section 1 of Form I-9 no later than the first day of employment.
- An employee must present to the employer an original document or documents that show his or her identity and employment authorization within 3 business days of the date employment begins.
- Employers must retain an employee’s completed Form I-9 for as long as the individual works for the employer. However, Form I-9 does not need to be filed with any federal agency.
