E-Verify: what employers should know before enrolling
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has increased employers’ Form I-9 audits by 60 percent in the current fiscal year. Consequently, many employers are considering enrolling in E-Verify, which could assist them in verifying their new employees’ employability and decrease the risk of an audit. You should involve legal counsel in the decision-making process, however, because once you’re enrolled, unenrolling could be problematic. You’d be required to give written notice of your desire to unenroll, which could trigger a governmental audit.
Before auditing or enrolling in E-Verify, learn how taking these steps may create liability for your company and why you might want to let the Immigration and Employment Board Certified Attorneys at Monty & Ramirez LLP navigate you through the best practices.
