Under the Immigration Reform and Control Act (“IRCA”) of 1986, all employers are required to verify the identity and work authorization of all individuals hired after November 6, 1986 – regardless of their citizenship.
Failure to Comply with I-9
Non-compliance with IRCA may result not only in adverse publicity for your organization but with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) now aggressively pursuing enforcement, it could result in high monetary penalties as well as criminal penalties. It is critical for employers to work with experienced immigration counsel to guide them through this complicated and ever-changing area of law.
