The Obama administration (Immigration Customs and Enforcement) has been placing increasing emphasis on civil fines and criminal procesecution of Employers who hire unauthorized workers. This policy has created a need for U.S. employers to be more compliance conscious than ever before. In many cases we are encouraging employers to enrol in the E-VERIFY program.
Employers with unauthorized workers face not only the possibility of civil penalties including fines and bars to employing foreign nationals in the future, but also criminal prosecution and the risk of a public relations problems that can have negative consequences on their success.
U.S. employers have for many years been required to verify all employees eligibility to work by examining identity and employment authorization documents, and attesting to the verification on Form I-9. In recent years, federal and state laws have broadened the requirement to participate in E-Verify a computerized employment eligibility verification program. Many other obligations have also been imposed on employers. Another issue facing U.S. empoyers, is that verifying employees eligibility to work can expose them to potential discrimination charges.
