Audit notices served to 180 businesses
Businesses in five states (Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee) have been issued Notices of Inspection (NOIs) by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). These notices preface an inspection by ICE to determine if each business is complying with regulations and rules governing employment verification. Part of this inspection deals with inspecting the I-9 forms that each business is required to keep on each employee in its workforce.
These NOIs demonstrate the government’s emphasis on investigating employers and their practices in hiring a legal workforce, while discontinuing the massive worksite raids that took place during the last few years.
