Topic Background
Whenever an employer hires an individual, the employer must prepare an I-9 that confirms the applicant's identity and that the applicant is legally authorized to work in the United States. Although an employer is not required to be an immigration expert in filling out the I-9, small errors can lead to costly fines. ICE conducts over 60,000 I-9 inspections each year. In addition, an executive order requires federal contractors to use e-verify to determine the validity of the documents produced during the I-9 process, and many states have similar laws. ICE also has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Office of Contract Compliance Programs and the Wage and Hour Division where these agencies will inspect your I-9s during an OFCCP audit or a wage and hour investigation. Failure to complete the I-9 properly can lead to civil and criminal penalties (up to $3000) for each unauthorized working alien and a prison sentence of up to six months.
