652 businesses were recently served notices of immigration audits.
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has recently launched their new audit initiative issuing 652 Notices of Inspection. The notices explain that ICE will be inspecting the hiring records of these businesses including auditing I-9 form compliance. The businesses that have been presented a Notice were selected due to complaints and information provided by other investigations. ICE has stated that it is “focusing its resources on the auditing and investigation of employers suspected of cultivating illegal workplaces by knowingly hiring illegal workers.” This new audit initiative has increased the amount of notices sent over last years 503.
