New Guidance for Employers Conducting Internal Form I-9 Audits

While not required by law, an employer may conduct an internal audit of Forms I-9 to ensure ongoing compliance with the employer sanctions provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

The Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Justice Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) recently published guidance for employers who want to perform their own internal Form I-9 audits.

This guidance is intended to help employers structure and implement self-audits in a manner consistent with the employer sanctions and anti-discrimination provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

Employers may also want to work with legal counsel to conduct any such internal self-audits.
