ICE sends audit notices to 180 new businesses

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is issuing Notices of Inspection (NOIs) of I-9 forms to 180 businesses in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee. Employers are required to complete and retain a Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This form requires employers to review and record the individual's identity document(s) and determine whether the document(s) reasonably appear to be genuine and related to the individual.

The notices warn  business owners that ICE will be inspecting their hiring records to determine whether they are complying with employment eligibility verification laws and regulations. The names of the businesses have not been released.

See the ICE press release here.  For information on I-9 requirements, see this blog posting.
