New Round of I-9 Audits

Categories: Immigration Lawyer Blog San Diego

Employers around the country report Notices of Inspection. While the number of these notices has not yet been confirmed it has been reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will issue at least 500 of them. It is a good time for employers to double check that all I-9s are properly filled out, and that public access files for all H-1B employees are in proper order.
ICE generally looks more favorably on employers who have made a good faith effort to comply and correct errors on their own prior to receiving the notice of the audit (indicating the date a correction was made and initialing).
