Protect Your Company

Establishing a Foundation of Trust by Integrating Contract Compliance Audit Programs into Operations
In today’s political climate, the risk of an employment eligibility review – either by U.S. Government officials or a business partner – is high. The best practice is to conduct regular Form I-9 reviews, and ensure that you are prepared.
Most employers know they are responsible for completing a Form I-9 for all new hires. Companies minimize risk when they provide a thorough and accurate Form I-9 as well as appropriate supporting records. If a U.S. Government audit reveals deficiencies in your records or process, you may be exposed to significant penalties including:
- Civil fines
- Criminal charges (when there is a pattern or practice of violations)
- Debarment from government contracts
- A court order requiring back pay to the individual discriminated against
- A court order requiring the employer to hire the individual discriminated against
