How to Conduct I-9 Self Audits and Avoid the High Cost of Non-Compliance


Learn best practices for conducting an in-house audit and how to address common Form I-9 paperwork errors and other issues.

Employers are often familiar with their basic obligation under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) to verify the employment eligibility of all new employees at the time that they are hired, but may be less familiar with the consequences of noncompliance. In the event of an audit by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), mere paperwork violations can bring fines of $272 to $2,701 per violation (adjusted periodically for inflation), with even higher fines if an employer has knowingly hired or continued to employ individuals not authorized to work in the United States. This presentation will explain an employer's obligations under the IRCA and the consequences of noncompliance. The live presentation will also explain best practices for conducting an in-house audit, tips on taking corrective action where necessary, and how to address common Form I-9 paperwork errors and other issues. After the presentation, employers will be equipped with the tools necessary to evaluate their organization's I-9 compliance program and minimize any exposure to noncompliance in the event of an ICE audit.
