New Guidance on How to Conduct Internal I-9 Audits

Berin Romagnolo December 17, 2015

The Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) just issued a joint guidance for employers explaining how to conduct an internal I-9 audit.  It discusses many common questions regarding internal I-9 audits, such as how to select which I-9’s to audit, how to correct errors and omissions, which version of the I-9 form should be used, how to handle errors on I-9’s for former employees, and how long it should give employees to correct errors.

The guidance also discusses related e-verify issues, including how to handle tentative non-confirmations of work authorization.  Please click the link above to access the guidance.

If you have any questions regarding the guidance, or other immigration-related questions, please contact Berin Romagnolo.
