In this video,Carl Shusterman, a former INS Attorney (1976-82) who has assisted many employers in complying with I-9 audits over the past 30 years, provides advice to employers seeking to minimize their liability under the law.
Employers are required to complete an I-9 form for every person that they have hired after November 6, 1986. Periodically, the USCIS sends Notices of Inspection to employers to audit their I-9 forms. If the government finds that certain employees are not authorized to work for the employer, they must be terminated. If addition, if there is a finding that the employer committed any paperwork violations, or had either actual or “constructive” knowlege that undocumented workers were employed, the USCIS may impose civil fines and/or criminal penalties on the employer.
