CFO View of I9 Solutions
In recent years, the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security have made I-9 compliance a top priority. Many employers are unaware that they may not be compliant and an audit can come at any time. In 2018, ICE delivered over 5,000 notices of audit to businesses in the US, and in 2017 businesses were ordered to pay over $7 million in civil fines.
If your company is audited and penalties are found, the fines could be devastating. Depending on the infraction, a business could face millions in penalties. These fines are often made public and could result in negative publicity and potential legal fees. If the need to use key internal resources during the audit process are needed, additional costs could impact business operations. More and more businesses are seeking a full-service compliance solution. A DoxTek solution provides peace of mind to our clients by helping reduce overall costs and providing a quick return on your investment.
