When hiring any employee, employers are required by federal immigration law to verify that person’s identity and eligibility to work in the U.S. by completing the Form I-9.
Both a complex and detailed process, the Form I-9 comes with 15 pages of instructions issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). It’s a process that has its share of related issues, such as what to do if you discover an employee is not authorized to work in the U.S.
What’s more, Form I-9 worksite inspections are a high priority by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). When subject to one of these inspections, California employers must comply with posting and notice requirements under our state’s Immigrant Worker Protection Act, in effect since January 1, 2018.
“More than ever before, it’s essential for California employers to ensure Form I-9 compliance, and be prepared for an ICE inspection at any time,” says Erika Pickles, co-presenter and CalChamber employment law counsel.
