Employers Are paying close attention to Form I-9 compliance IN 2018


Employers pay attention to Form I-9 compliance. Meaning, are you properly completing the employment eligibility verification form for all new hires and re-verifying employees’ expiring work authorization?

The reason being that the number of ICE investigations in 2018 has doubled since 2017. So far in fiscal year 2018, ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) initiated twice the number of worksite enforcement investigations compared to all of last year.
