“If just filling out a piece of paper was all you needed to do to stay compliant, then everyone would be compliant. But many organizations that face employee compliance issues with regard to Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 and other employee files are not compliant, said Joey V. Price (@JVPsaid), CEO of managed HR services firm Jumpstart:HR and author of “Never Miss the Mark: Career Search Strategies Provided by HR Pros” in conversation with Sarah White (@imsosarah) of the HRTechBlog.

According to Price, the top two causes of a non-compliant workforce are:
• Operating business as usual: If you just copy and paste old information and use out of date forms, you’ll be out of compliance very quickly.

• Out-of-date training: Procedures change often. If you go with old procedures and fail to put in place a standard procedure which would require self-auditing, then you can count on non-compliance.”
