ICE: Is Your Business Prepared for a Silent Raid?

January 2014
Employment Law Notes
Immigration reform has been on the government’s radar for some time, and 2014 promises to be no different. Over the past four years, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has audited the I-9 employment records of over 10,000 employers and imposed more than $100 million in fines. In September 2013, ICE notified another 1,000 employers that it would be conducting I-9 compliance and worksite enforcement audits. This new wave of “silent raids” is the largest round of I-9 inspections since 2009.
