Form I-9 Compliance Issues Every Employer Needs to Know

Presented by Patricia A. Bollman

Identifying for employers compliance issues that they need to address in order to be in the best possible position to defend an I-9 audit by Immigration & Customs Enforcement (“ICE”). Form I-9 compliance goes beyond just filling out the form. It requires that every business have Form I-9 Policies and Procedures in place that cover topics such as properly making corrections on a Form I-9, storage of Form I-9s, destruction of Form I-9s, name changes, identity changes, internal I-9 audits, the anti-discrimination portion of the law that established the Form I-9 and others that need to be in place in order to be I-9 compliant.

How To Properly Complete the NEW Form I-9

Presented by Patricia A. Bollman 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) released a newly revised Employment Verification Form, Form I-9 on November 14, 2016. Employers are required to use the Form I-9 to verify the identity and employment authorization eligibility of their employees. The new Form I-9 will become mandatory on January 22, 2017.

The new Form I-9 contains many changes – it is now 3 pages long with an additional 4th page “supplement”, the instructions are now 15 pages long and among other features have many "smart" features when completed online in pdf format. Some of these "smart" features include drop-down functionality for filling in lists and selecting dates, prompts on certain fields to ensure information is entered correctly, and embedded instructions for completing each field. One of the primary goals of the new Form I-9 was to help employers reduce errors and ease the process of completing the I-9 form on their office computers. However, the new "smart" features do not constitute an electronic Form I-9. So it is important for employers to understand what the responsibilities are if the Form I-9 is completed on a computer. The new Form I-9 also includes some structural changes and new fields. We strongly recommend that before implementing the use of the new Form I-9, that anyone who is responsible for handling the Form I-9 receive proper training. Training prior to implementation will seriously reduce errors. An increase in I-9 audits by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) is expected once the new Form I-9 becomes mandatory. And remember - I-9 fines increased on August 1, 2016, so the potential liability to a company is significant.

The Proper Way to Correct I-9 Documents and Not Pay Penalties! Use New Tools Accepted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)

Presented by Margie Faulk

I was one of 3 compliance auditors who reviewed over 7,000 I9 documents from an agricultural farm in Florida in 2012. We were hired when the company was audited for I9 document violations and a possible violation of hiring illegal immigrants. It was the start of when regulatory agencies were cracking down on immigration hiring and the abuse of immigrants. The company, a strawberry farm in Lakeland, Florida paid over $350,000 in fines and then agreed to have Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the enforcement arm, conduct an audit of all their I9 documents for the past 5 years.

It was during this intense audit that I learned some of the details and idiosyncrasies of I9 document corrections and what ICE determines as compliance. The 3 auditors were in communication with ICE during the initially 2 weeks then expanded to almost 3 months. After the 2 weeks, the other auditor left, and we were left with 2 auditors who maintained the intense review for 3 months. Because of this internal review and agreement, the strawberry farm had with DHS, the fines were reduced to $150,000 with an ongoing audit for the next 5 years. Here is where I learned that I9 documents can be an easy way for DHS to identify fines and penalties. There is no reason to give any regulatory entities free money in violations and fines.
