How to Avoid Seven Figure Immigration and Customs Enforcement Penalties
Employers could face up to $16,000 per employee as well as criminal penalties. Don’t miss this ExpertWebinar ™ on I-9 Compliance and Recordkeeping by ExpertQuote.
Corporate benefits firm ExpertQuote Insurance Services, Inc. has announced a complimentary ExpertWebinar™ focusing on Recordkeeping and I-9 Compliance to be helf on December 2nd at 10 AM PST. An I-9 audit can be an intimidating event. If an organization hasn’t properly completed or maintained I-9s, it can also be a costly one. This interactive webinar will help prepare HR professionals so that they can be confident their organization is in compliance. The webinar will also focus on general federal recordkeeping compliance, including required retention times for hiring documents, payroll and tax information, and other important employee files.
Although the I-9 form can seem to be a simple form, the handbook for employers is an extensive 69-page document. There are many common mistakes that can be made while completing and maintaining I-9 records. If an employer fails to complete or maintain I-9 documentation correctly, that employer may fall out of compliance with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) rules and suffer harsh financial penalties. Fines for I-9 errors begin at $110 dollars per error and climb to tens of thousands of dollars for repeat and grave offenses. If an employer has one form per employee and multiple mistakes on each form, the financial penalties could quickly escalate into six and seven figures.
Raj Singh, COO of ExpertQuote, said, “We know and understand that recordkeeping and I-9 compliance are timely topics. At ExpertQuote, we support HR professionals in gaining information and knowledge by contributing to their success and that of their organization.
