Have you received a letter from Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) instructing your company to produce I-9 forms for inspection? If so, you are not alone. If not, it may only be a matter of time. The U.S. government has taken immigration enforcement to historic new levels with record-breaking numbers of I-9 audits, fines, and the increased criminal prosecution of employers. In 2013, ICE initiated more than 3,900 cases, which led to 3,127 I-9 inspections — and ordered more than $13 million in fines. More than ever, compliance is critical.
