On September 29, 2017, the DHS and Immigration Control Enforcement (ICE), the enforcement arm of DHS, hired 3 floors of new I-9 Document Auditors in their Tampa Field Office. This increase is to accommodate a huge push to conduct I-9 document audits to increase their fines and penalties since they know most Employers have errors! ICE is counting on Employer errors to increase their budget! Are you prepared????

I was one of 3 compliance auditors who reviewed over 7,000 I9 documents from an agricultural farm in Florida in 2012. We were hired when the company was audited for I9 document violations and possible violation for hiring illegal immigrants. It was the start of when regulatory agencies were cracking down on immigration hiring and the abuse of immigrants. The company, a strawberry farm in Lakeland, Florida paid over $350,000 in fines and then agreed to have Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the enforcement arm, conduct an audit of all their I-9 documents for the past 5 years.

You must be in compliance with the new changes effective September 18, 2017.The government takes employment eligibility seriously today, more than ever before. Organizations cannot risk clerical mistakes or lack of knowledge on the laws pertaining to I-9 compliance. This webinar will explain how to stay compliant with the law regarding the provisions of the IRCA and the related I-9 regulations to avoid lawsuits, significant fines and even criminal penalties.

Course Objective:

Many Employers take the risk or are unaware the I9 documents penalties and fines. Moreover, Employers are under the impression that I9 document violations are low risk because “who is going to tell?”.

Well I am here to tell Employers that anyone can make a claim or complaint and it doesn’t even have to be true. Additionally, now the regulatory agencies are communicating more than ever before. The Department of Labor (DOL) communicates with the Internal Revenue Services (IRS), the DHS communicates with Child Support Services and on and on, it isn’t hard to imagine news getting out to target Employers however, research has proven that most complaints come from disgruntled employees and others come from audits of target industries. Additionally, effective January 21, 2017, the DHS developed a new I-9 Form that needed to be used effective September 28, 2017.

Employers must be aware of all the new guidelines for completing the new I-9 form as well as the ongoing regulations.

It was during this intense audit that I learned some of the details and idiosyncrasies of I-9 document corrections and what ICE determines as compliance. In this session we will talk about:

• Why are most HR professionals or those responsible for processing I9 documents still violating the request for documents section?
