SC Immigration Attorney Employer Compliance
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 ("IRCA") required employers under that law to verify the identity and work authorization status of every employee of the business. The mechanism for compliance is the I-9 Employment Verification Form that every worker must complete on the day of hire or earlier. Failure to comply with IRCA’s I-9 rules can result in but not limited to: significant fines, and highly negative publicity for a company.
Due to the complexity of employer compliance and the changing nature of this part of the law, if you are an employer, please call the office to schedule an appointment.
