Employer Immigration Compliance Assistance

Deportation defense-1Immigration Laws Affecting Employers

The Immigration Reform and Control Act  of 1986  states that it is illegal to employ anyone not legally authorized to work in the United States. The law requires employers  to  document all workers employment eligibility. As part of the documentation process, the employer is responsible to ensure that every employee completes an employment eligibility form, also known as an I-9 Form. This form must be retained by the employer as part of the employee file and must be made available for inspection by officers of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or the Department of Labor upon request.

Attorney Joseph A. Connell Sr. is highly experienced in assisting employers with I-9 compliance procedures. He and his team routinely performs audits of I-9 forms and provides training to administrative personnel for small business on the proper completion and storage of I-9 records. We also assists employers on responses to I-9 notice of inspection and criminal enforcement actions. We guide employers on the immigration liabilities associated with I-9 forms as to how to minimize any potential exposure to fines.
