Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is increasing its employer audits. Every company needs a completed Form I-9 for every employee (and certain former employees) ready to provide when ICE comes calling. We get it, there are a lot of things to manage when it comes to I-9 compliance. And even with the best intentions it's easy for some things to get overlooked. That's why an internal I-9 audit is considered a best practice when it comes to managing I-9 compliance. Did you know that when ICE provides a Notice of Inspection (NOI) you could have as few as three days to respond? With I-9 compliance penalties at an all-time high your organization could be at significant risk. And, if you still have paper I-9s on file your risk could be magnified as an estimated 60-80% of paper I-9s have issues.* It's better to get your I-9 compliance in order now, so you don't have to scramble during an I-9 audit from ICE.
