I-9 Audit Surge Confirmed by ICE

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced that it has served more than 3,000 Notices of Inspection this week to businesses across the country.

Notices typically require an organization to supply I-9 files and other employment records to ICE within three days.

As JD Supra explains, these notices are usually accompanied by “original Forms I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification and employee records”.

Experts urge employers to prepare for a government I-9 audit now, as penalties for non-compliance can exceed $1,800 per form.

Experts further warn employers that the surge in ICE raids and enforcement can be expected to continue.
