After a flurry of revisions over the past several years, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) settled in March on the latest edition of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.
Many employers mistakenly believe that if they volunteer to participate in E-Verify they will be immune from scrutiny by the government regarding their pre-employment practices. This misconception can prove to be quite costly.
Federal officials are planning to launch another round of worksite investigations, focusing their attention this time on employers who have already been the subjects of Form I-9 inspections in the past three years.
