Defense Against ICE Audits & Penalties


Internal I-9 Audits

Internal audits are a key source in ensuring I-9 compliance. They provide a chance to review the forms, identify missing I-9s and reveal errors (if any). While not required by the law, an employer may conduct internal audits to ensure ongoing compliance with the employer sanctions provision of the INA.

An employer may choose to review all Forms I-9 or a sample of Forms I-9 selected based on neutral and non-discriminatory criteria.
