The I9 compliance requirement for employers is enforced more often than ever before due to new government policy changes. Not only must employers comply with immigration laws, but they must also abide by anti-discrimination laws that can make them open to civil lawsuits. Employers must not discriminate against individuals on the basis of national origin, citizenship, or immigration status.
If a business is audited and compliance errors are found, the penalties for mistakes in the employee files are very costly. Business owners must protect their business from expensive penalties and fines.
