Wyatt Employment Law Report

Inspections of I-9 Forms Are Increasing Nationwide

Leave a comment

By Glen Krebs

Several lawyers have indicated that clients have received I-9 audit letters.  It is  estimated that at least 500 employers nationwide will be receiving Notices of Inspection (NOIs) in the coming weeks.  The inspections could lead to civil penalties and even criminal indictments.

NOIs will include requests for hiring, payroll and other records to determine compliance with employment eligibility verification laws. Employers will be expected to produce original I-9s within three days from service of the NOI.  We have previously provided instructions for dealing with Immigration audits.  If you would like additional information, please feel free to contact Glen Krebs at gkrebs@wyattfirm.com or 859-288-7409.

We are also happy to assist you to conduct an internal I-9 audit and develop a basic immigration compliance plan.
