DOJ increases fines for Form I-9 violations
Tags : I-9/E-Verify Compliance
I-9 penalties assessed after Jan. 29, 2018, have been adjusted for inflation.
Errors on Form I-9s, such as failure to check a box or enter a date, can now result in a monetary penalty between $224 and $2,236 per violation.
Previously, penalties ranged from $220 to $2,191.
Swelling fine totals, coupled with increased occurrences of I-9 audits, provide the opportunity for companies to potentially expose themselves to hundreds, thousands or potentially millions of dollars worth of fines for instances of I-9 noncompliance. Now more than ever, it is important that employers ensure that Form I-9’s are being completed accurately and on time for each new employee.
