In recent article, the New York Times discusses the high costs associated with missing or incorrect I-9 paperwork. Small business owners without proper training on how to fill these forms out correctly can face fines that not only hurt from a financial perspective but they also hurt your image as well.
Here is a quote from the article:
“While the human side of the issue is compelling, employers must comply with the law, said Mr. Lake, the immigration lawyer. There is no way to avoid an ICE audit, but establishing and maintaining the right procedures can help you survive one. Mr. Lake recommends that employers review their practices and seek professional assistance if they are not knowledgeable about legal requirements. Sloppy record-keeping can lead to fines for technical violations.”
