Navigating the complexities of I-9 and e-Verify compliance can be challenging for businesses of all sizes. Our compliance services are designed to simplify these processes and ensure your company is operating in full compliance with the law. We offer an integrated suite of services that includes everything from I-9 audits to answering questions about e-Verify, providing you with the confidence and peace of mind that your organization is adhering to all relevant immigration regulations.
Every employer in the United States is required to complete a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, for every single newly hired employee within three business days of hire. This is not a new rule. It was enacted under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. It does not apply to anyone who was hired before November 6, 1986.
The managers and hiring personnel in most medium to larger corporations are required to undergo formal Employment Verification Training in order to ensure that they are properly verifying the employment eligibility of every single employee hired on or after November 6, 1986. We highly recommend some level of employer verification training for all US employers. For example, there are certain requirements like identity documents and employment eligibility documentation that many employers may be unaware of.
We regularly provide I-9 training for our clients around the United States. The reasons this training is so essential is because of the heavy penalties that face employers who are either inadvertently violating employment verification laws and, even more problematically, those employers who are knowingly violating the laws. If your company, firm, or small business is not completing a Form I-9 for all newly hired employees, you should apprise yourself of the regulations and beware of penalties.
If your office needs this kind of training or an in-house audit of your current employment verification procedures, please contact one of our corporate immigration attorneys.
For managers and hiring personnel, we also strongly urge that you remain familiar with the rules on how to interview people prior to hiring. This is important to avoid discrimination pitfalls.
