All employers are required to complete Form I-9 to verify the identity and employment authorization of hired workers. Mistakes on this seemingly simple 2-page form can lead to hefty civil fines if an employer is hit with an I-9 audit by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
ICE has quadrupled the number of I-9 audits issued between 2017 and 2019. Employer compliance is key to avoid I-9 civil fines for substantive paperwork violations, which range from $234 to $2,332 per violation. Fines for knowingly hiring or continuing to employ unauthorized workers range from $583 to $4,667 for first time offenses.
Our webinar will provide your business with essential information to avoid I-9 fines like a pro!
Specifically, this webinar will include:
• How to properly complete the new Form I-9
• Common errors found during an I-9 self audit
• Overview of the ICE audit process, from Notice of Inspection to Notice of Intent to Fine
• Overview of how I-9 fines are calculated
