ICE to Crack Down on Workplace Audits Regarding Form I-9

US-Immigration-and-Customs-Enforcement-Seal-Plaque-L1In 2012, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, henceforth referred to as ICE, conducted more than 3,000 workplace audits. These audits resulted in millions of dollars in fines for businesses all over the United States. ICE is responsible for making sure companies complete and retain a Form I-9 for all new hires. Form I-9 is the document used to verify a potential employee’s eligibility to legally work in the United States. HR Strategies handles new hire paperwork for its clients; thus maintaining Form I-9s for all new hires. HR Strategies keeps their clients compliant with countless government regulations, saving those clients time, money, and stress. One of the regulatory issues we handle for clients is determining a new hire’s eligibility to work. Per the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website, “U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization.” HR Strategies continues to handle this essential responsibility for clients, keeping them up to date with any changes made to the law.
