Differentiating Between ICE Raid and Audits: How to Respond

March 10

Learn what steps your company must take in order to avoid and/or mitigate liability associated with an ICE workplace audit or raid.

In 2019, ICE workplace investigations, which can lead to an ICE raid, quadrupled compared to those under the Obama administration. Oftentimes, employers have little or no time to prepare for an ICE raid or audit. Because this trend will continue in 2020, this topic will help businesses and their compliance teams understand the differences between an ICE raid and an ICE audit and describe what you should or should not do in these situations. The information will also guide you with how to best avoid a raid or audit. As you will learn, the Form I-9 is a critical component of ICE investigations, and employers may face significant fines based on noncompliant Forms I-9 and supporting documentation. As such, this material describes best practices for completing and managing Forms I-9 and for assessing employee work authorization documents and issues that arise from document fraud, social security mismatch notices, and other related issues. Additionally, the topic provides recommendations on how to implement an immigration compliance plan that makes sense based on the size and industry of your company to minimize the risk of an ICE raid or audit.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss the ICE audit and raid trends that will affect employers in 2020.
  • You will be able to explain the different issues and liability that arise in an ICE workplace audit versus an ICE raid.
  • You will be able to identify Form I-9 issues within your company and comprehend what steps you can take to improve your company’s Form I-9 compliance standards.
  • You will be able to recognize what steps your company must take in order to avoid and/or mitigate liability associated with an ICE workplace audit or raid.
