Workplace Audits – Employers Beware!

employmentformsOn 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.
