As has happened almost every year, early in 2018 new fee/penalty schedules for Form I-9 violations were announced, and they're not lower. These fines can be assessed for paperwork errors such as missing or incorrect fields, dates beyond the allotted time for completion and incomplete or missing Forms I-9.
Employers should continue to aggressively monitor their immigration programs for compliance or suffer the harsher sting of these increased fines. Given that the penalties for Form I-9 errors are practically doubled, it is more important than ever to ensure your Form I-9s are completed timely, correctly and are periodically audited. Moreover, most I-9 violations are considered continuing violations until they are corrected.
