Immigration and Form I-9

Employee Wellness Programs

We understand that one of the biggest HR challenges is complying with the Form I-9 process, where fines can be as high as $16,000 per unauthorized foreign national employed.

In order to comply with the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) employers must verify the identity of their employees and that the employees are authorized to work in the US. As such, employers and employees are required to fill out an Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 (Form I-9). Did you know that in the last 5 years there has been a 600% increase in Form I-9 audits by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)? In addition, in 2012 ICE sought $12.48 million in administrative fines for illegal employment practices.
