Why Should You Attend:
The DHS and Immigration Control Enforcement (ICE), the enforcement arm of DHS, increased their efforts 100% to increase I-9 audits to Employers nationwide. More audits are expected via warrants and Notification of Inspection (NOI).
As immigration remains at the center of national attention, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is not just stepping up its enforcement efforts at the border.
During fiscal year 2018, ICE conducted over 5200 I-9 audits. This was nearly a 400 percent increase over the number of I-9 audits in fiscal year 2017, and the largest number of I-9 audits ever. ICE has said it plans to conduct as many as 15,000 I-9 audits per year if it receives sufficient funding, and that one of its goals is to create a “reasonable expectation” among employers that they will be audited. Accordingly, all employers should be prepared.
In fiscal year 2017, ICE collected $97.6 million dollars in judicial forfeitures, fines, and restitution, and $7.8 million dollars in civil fines, as a result of I-9 audits. In September 2017 a single employer was ordered to pay $95 million dollars, including $80 million dollars in the form of a criminal forfeiture money judgment and $15 million dollars in civil fines, making it the largest payment ever levied in an immigration case.

Many Employers take the risk or are unaware the increase in I9 documents penalties and fines as well as an increase in I-9 Form Audits by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Moreover, Employers are under the impression that I9 document violations are low risk because “who is going to tell?”.
Well I am here to tell Employers that anyone can make a claim or complaint and it doesn’t even have to be true. Additionally, now the regulatory agencies are communicating more than ever before. The Department of Labor (DOL) communicates with the Internal Revenue Services (IRS), the DHS communicates with Child Support Services and on and on, it isn’t hard to imagine news getting out to target Employers however, research has proven that most complaints come from disgruntled employees and others come from audits of target industries.
Employers must be aware of all the new guidelines for completing the new I-9 form as well as the ongoing regulations for appropriate method of correcting this document without incurring fines and penalties.
