"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),"
"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.
