EMPLOYER I-9 COMPLIANCE, HR TRAINING & RAPID DEFENSE
The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) requires employers to verify their employees’ immigration status. President Donald Trump has made it clear, through Executive Orders, that he intends to enforce these employment verification laws more rigorously and is proposing to hire 10,000 more U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, many of whom will focus on I-9 audits.
The Trump administration vows to assess millions in civil penalties for I-9 violations and employment discrimination as employers are subject to unprecedented levels of legal scrutiny at all stages of the hiring and employment process. Small businesses across the country already have been assessed thousands of dollars in civil penalties for I-9 violations and some are also losing their business licenses and being squeezed out of the bid process for government contracts.
CagnIart law can help establish good I-9 employment verification programs and policies, train human resources, conduct internal I-9 self-audits as well as respond to Notices of Inspection and Notices of Intent to Fine.
