On November 19, 2009, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“USICE”) announced that it will begin to conduct workplace audits to ensure that employers have complied with employment verification laws when hiring a foreign national. According to the USICE, Notices of Inspection will be issued to 1,000 employers nationwide.
Audits involve a comprehensive review of Form I-9s, which employers are required to complete and retain for each individual hired in the United States. I-9 forms require employers to review and record each individual’s identity and work eligibility document(s) and determine whether the document(s) reasonably appear to be genuine and related to that specific individual.
