Is Your I-9 Policy Vulnerable to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Sanctions? A Review


As you probably know, Form I-9 is a mandatory employment eligibility verification form. Completion of the I-9 by both employer and employee must occur within three days of hire for every employee hired after November 6, 1986, regardless of nationality or immigration status.

I-9 violations can occur even if your entire workforce is legal. A paperwork violation can be something as simple as failing to date or sign the I-9 Form. Fines can range from $110 to $1,100 per paperwork violation, but increase exponentially for knowing violations. For instance, employers convicted of having knowingly hired illegal aliens or continuing to employ aliens who are or became unauthorized to work may face fines of up to $3,000 per employee and/or six months’ imprisonment.
