Surprising as it might sound, many employers are either unaware of I-9 documents penalties and fines, or are willing to take the risk of noncompliance. This is a very bad situation to be in, something that has been compounded by the fact that the regulatory agencies are communicating more than ever before on this topic. The way in which the departments communicate with each other makes it easier for them to target employers.

Yet, the fact is that most complaints come from disgruntled employees, while others come from audits of target industries. Moreover, the DHS developed a new I-9 Form effective from January 21, 2017, which has to be used immediately. This makes it imperative for employers to be aware of all the new guidelines for completing the new I-9 form as well as the ongoing regulations.
