THE ICE(MAN) COMETH...
ICE cometh and it could be trouble for your company if you’re not prepared. As part of its shift in strategy, ICE is going after employers instead of undocumented workers.
According to a statement issued by DHS, on July 1, 2009, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) served 652 businesses nationwide with Notices of Inspection (NOI) for an official Form I-9 audit. The 652 businesses were selected for the Notices of Inspection "as a result of leads and information obtained through other investigative means."
This latest action by ICE signifies an increase in the federal government's efforts to inspect employer and hiring documentation.
These leads and information could possibly stem from information from other regulatory agencies (DOL, EEOC, OSHA), or simply disgruntled former employees. There is a very strong correlation between Social Security Administration (SSA) no-match letters.
This nationwide effort is a first step in ICE¹s long-term strategy to address and deter illegal employment, said U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS. As part of its shift in strategy, ICE is going after employers instead of undocumented workers!
