Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has a renewed vigor for compliance enforcement under the current “zero tolerance” policy. Employers have experienced approximately double the amount of work place investigations according to an ICE publication, with an ICE Official stating:
“Our worksite enforcement strategy continues to focus on the criminal prosecution of employers who knowingly break the law, and the use of I-9 audits and civil fines to encourage compliance with the law,HSI’s worksite enforcement investigators help combat worker exploitation, illegal wages, child labor and other illegal practices.”
Government immigration enforcement and audits are at an all-time high under ICE’s new 2-phase nationwide audit operation, which has already delivered over 5,200 I-9 audit notices.
