ICE I-9 Audits Surge
It's Time to Get Your I-9s in Order!
Bernard Wolfsdorf, Managing Partner, and Attorney Robert
Blanco of WR Global Immigration LLP examine the impact of
ICE's avalanche of recent I-9 audits, raids and arrests.
Employers throughout the U.S. are grappling with thousands
of I-9 audit notices issued by the Department of Homeland
Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In
addition, the Social Security Administration sent thousands
of "no-match" letters to employers, creating anxiety in the
workplace. The ICE audits and SSA's "no-match" letters
present a huge challenge for employers to ensure they
comply with immigration laws.
Failure to properly maintain I-9 compliance can lead to
severe financial penalties. Knowingly hiring undocumented
employees can even lead to criminal liability. In August
2019, U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst warned after the arrest of
680 workers at chicken processing plants in Mississippi,
"To those who use illegal aliens for a competitive advantage
or to make a quick buck, we have something to say to you:
If we find you have violated federal criminal law, we are
coming for you."
One way to ensure compliance is to enroll in the
government's E-Verify system to confirm an employee's
work authorization. Second, ensure that all onboarding
staff are trained on proper I-9 documentation procedures
and follow internal organizational policies. Keeping records
organized is crucial if an employer receives an audit. A

cutting-edge Immigrant Management System such as
WRapid fully integrates with Workday and other advanced
HR software systems facilitating strict compliance with
immigration rules and regulations.
Finally, conduct an internal audit of existing I-9 records. An
immigration attorney can help review records for error, look
for patterns, and recommend proper methods for improving
I-9 completion. It is much better to correct deficient I-9
forms now before an audit notice is received.
Employer immigration compliance is currently a major point
of emphasis for U.S. immigration enforcement with even
more audits on the horizon. Implementing pre-emptive I-9
policies can save significant time, stress, and liability.
