Over 80% of Employer I-9 Forms are Flawed! Here’s the Best Solution
Form I-9 Audits should be an integral piece of every employer’s I-9 process. While many employers elect to utilize error-detecting electronic I-9 solutions, such as the one provided by Form I-9 Compliance, LLC, they fail to audit their existing paper I-9 Forms. It is these very forms that can potentially cost larger employers MILLIONS of dollars in fines by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) because 80-90% of the average employer’s I-9 Forms are usually flawed.
ICE is the investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that is tasked with ensuring that the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) is enforced. According to a recent ICE press release, ICE is stepping up its efforts to audit I-9s of U.S. employers. 652 businesses were issued Notices of Inspection (NOI) on July 1, 2009. The press release goes on to state that “ICE is committed to establishing a meaningful I-9 inspection program to promote compliance with the law. This nationwide effort is a first step in ICE’s long-term strategy to address and deter illegal employment,” said Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for ICE John Morton.”
It is clear that the federal government is making a concerted effort to enforce immigration laws by ensuring that employers are hiring employees that are authorized to work in the U.S.

The Solution: Form I-9 Compliance’s 3-Step Process
Form I-9 Compliance, LLC offers employers a “3-STEP” RISK ANALYSIS AND REMEDIATION PROCESS to proactively address overall compliance with the Form I-9 processes and procedures:
STEP 1: SSN “No Match” Protocols – Automated submission of employer payroll records to the Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS) to identify employees with “No Match” problems. (This process is conducted for payroll purposes only);
STEP 2: Form I-9 Vulnerability Assessment Audits – Proactive Form I-9 Audits conducted by Form I-9 Compliance, help to ensure full compliance with the requirements of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) and its subsequent amendments;
STEP 3: Scanning and Indexing of Form I-9s – Once the I-9 Forms have been audited by our senior auditing staff, the employer legally makes the appropriate changes and the corrected I-9s are scanned into an electronic database to create a completely paperless Form I-9 solution.
