SEATTLE - Aug. 5, 2020 - PRLog -- Designed to preserve employment for people legally entitled to work in America, the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) needs the attention of all employers.

"With the latest version of the I-9, we're seeing more I-9 audits, raids on employers, higher fines and required use of E-Verify (the web-based system to confirm eligibility of employees)," says Biz Coach Terry Corbell.

"Organizations must verify both the employment eligibility of all persons, and complete the Immigration and Naturalization form I-9 for documentation purposes," The Biz Coach adds.

Organizations are prevented from knowingly recruiting and and hiring unauthorized workers. Agencies cannot refer such workers for a fee.

If employers fail to comply, they face fines in civil and criminal liability. They can also be sentenced to prison if they repeatedly violate the IRCA.

The Biz Coach has published a complimentary article with guidelines for employers.

Included are these topics:

• Employment verification requirements

• I-9 form is only for hired individuals

• Retention of I-9 forms

• Liability for false I-9 documents

• Requirements for rehiring

• Terminating an employee failing to provide documentation within three days

• Employees later deemed to be ineligible to work

• Photocopies of documents aren't allowed
