How would you answer the following questions?

  • If the SSN entered into E-verify is incorrect, what steps should we take?
  • An employee just moved to our state, can we accept a temporary driver's license as a list B document?
  • We have remote hires and we don’t have a company office in their area, how should we go about obtaining the original document?
  • If an employee, who is a U.S. citizen, has been terminated and rehired after 3 months do we have to re-verify?

Are you sure your answers are correct? You need to be… DHS conducts 2 to 3 thousand audits annually, and has imposed over $100 million in financial sanctions in the past three years.

This type of “forensic” audit requires a comprehensive review of your business records, including:

  • Forms I-9s
  • Payroll reports, unemployment insurance tax reports, and quarterly tax statements,
  • Listings of independent contractors, and vendors of the targeted business (including IRS Forms 1099),
  • Copies of any letters issued by the Social Security Administration related to a social security number “no match,”
  • Copies of any petitions submitted to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and
  • Documents related to the employer’s formation and business activities.

Can your I-9 practices pass the muster?
