I-9 Self-Audits:
Spot and Fix I-9 Form Mistakes

Immigration Enforcement Graph

Government scrutiny of employers' I-9 forms is at an all-time high (see chart), so the question for HR departments is simple: Should you review that stack of I-9 forms yourself … or wait until the feds do it for you?

Self-auditing is obviously the smart way to avoid costly fines and liability – and it's becoming more popular. But where should you start? And what red flags should you look for?

The problem: Cleaning up your organization's Form I-9 files is more complicated and legally risky than you think. One mistake in this "find-and-fix" project can actually make your I-9 problem worse than before.

On Wednesday, February 20, discover the legally correct way to conduct a Form I-9 self-audit from beginning to end, including I-9 analysis, error correction procedures, communication protocols, managing timelines and more. Also, learn how to fix past mistakes on employees' I-9s without triggering expensive fines. Specifically, this new webinar will help you:

  • Discover best-practice procedures to conduct an internal Form I-9 self-audit from start to finish in a consistent and non-discriminatory manner.
  • Learn how to evaluate your organization's potential I-9 compliance risk, based on the government's current rules relating to substantive and procedural violations.
  • Understand the latest guidance on correcting past I-9 compliance mistakes, including specific auditing procedures, rules and options.
  • Learn the benefit of creating electronic Form I-9s for each employee – and with fewer errors.
  • Gain insight into ICE's recent worksite enforcement crackdown, including which industries are being targeted most.
  • Learn how to navigate the new Form I-9 "penalty matrix" for paperwork violations.
  • Find answers to your specific questions about conducting an I-9 self-audit in your workplace.

Why Now? Your odds of facing an I-9 audit are higher than ever. Last year alone, nearly 6,000 employers faced government inspection of their I-9 forms – up a whopping 339% percent from the year before. And those audits have led to a huge 600% increase in immigration-related worksite arrests (both employees AND managers/HR).

Don't leave your I-9 compliance up to chance – or the whims of an ICE auditor. On February 20, spend 75 minutes to learn the step-by-step, legally safe way to conduct an I-9 self-audit.
