Worksite I-9 Enforcement & Compliance
The United States Immigration Customs and Enforcement agency has increased its priority in auditing employer records for hiring workers who are not legally authorized to work in the United States. The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) came into effect in 1986 which require employers to verify employee immigration status. Today, IRCA still makes it illegal to hire someone who is not legally authorized to work in the United States. Through governmental enforcement, millions of dollars are generated every year through civil and criminal penalties against employers who are found not to be in I-9 compliance.
