As the federal government has recently increased its worksite enforcement activities, Klasko Law is taking the pulse of clients and blog readers like you.
This year alone, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has already conducted over 2,900 I-9 audits and issued more than $3 million in fines and penalties. Just last week, ICE issued an additional 500 I-9 audit notices throughout the U.S. The government has announced that it plans to continue if not increase aggressive enforcement against employers. At the same time, the US DOJ, Office of Special Counsel has stepped up enforcement of antidiscrimination rules and begun to aggressively pursue such claims in the I-9 and E-Verify context.
