I-9 Enforcement Scrutinized Now More Than Ever

All employers are now under considerably more scrutiny concerning the proper maintenance of I-9 forms. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is tasked with investigating employers to make sure they comply with all current hiring requirements laid out by the Department of Homeland Security.

At the law firm of Weiss, Alden & Polo, P.A., we help employers conform to these laws and regulations. We help all types of companies from small businesses to large corporations throughout South Florida that employ foreign workers to proactively protect the operation as well as respond to audits, investigations and other inquiries.

Miami Employment Eligibility Verification Form Lawyers

Our Miami I-9 compliance attorneys provide detailed assistance when it comes to:

  • Ensuring that if you are using E-Verify, it is being used correctly
  • Evaluating that all I-9's are filled out completely and accurately
  • Completing and filing all required paperwork with ICE timely

Our goal is to help you and your human resource department avoid an audit by making sure you are in full compliance with the law. We can help correct any deficiencies or errors in order to avoid mistakes that can lead to costly consequences. If you are employing someone who is "out of status," we can see if he or she qualifies to become "in status" and help facilitate this process. At Weiss, Alden & Polo, P.A., we know being proactive is the best approach.

Increasingly, ICE officials have been notifying employers that they want to visit a business and look at all of the company's records to determine if any of the employees are undocumented. They will see if any employment eligibility verification forms (I-9's) are incomplete or contain false information. As part of their immigration enforcement investigation, they may also speak with any member of the company about hiring practices, working conditions or payroll as it relates to the foreign immigrants on staff. The penalties if you are found in violation are quite severe and can include large fines and, in some situations, criminal charges.

If any violations are found, we will help you comply with all requests and correct them as well as negotiate any penalties assessed to the business. We will aggressively protect your interests.
