As a member of the HR Department, you know ensuring your paperwork is in order needs to be at the top of your must-do list. (If it isn’t, consider adding “Re-order must-do list” to the top of your must-do list.)
According to JD Supra, the amount of I-9 audits conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has quintupled over the last 4 years. And, as you’ll find in JD Supra’s article – “Hiring: Sloppy paperwork can lead to fines,” – this day-and-age, simply documenting everything may not be enough to avoid ICE. (Even if you’re sure to cross the “T’s” and dot the…lower case j’s.”)
And should you become overwrought by the thought of becoming an anecdotal tale of I-9 woe, perhaps subscribe to Employment Verification – An Employer’s Guide to Immigration, Form I-9, and E-Verify on HRsimple.com.
