Workforce Compliance Insights

Immigration compliance is everyone’s concern, yet too often companies do not prioritize it until something big or bad happens. Think about how you would react if Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrived at corporate headquarters or your office with a Notice of Inspection to review your forms I-9 within three days… The goal of this blog is to alert employers about issues surrounding employer compliance and flag issues they should be considering as they develop an overall immigration compliance program for their company. It should provide a resource and tool to discuss what steps can be taken to comply with federal and state immigration and employment laws.
