    Did you know....

    • The average fine per error on an I-9 form is $1,000.00
    • The average I-9 completed by employers contain at least 5 errors even with staff trained on completing them correctly
    • The companies targeted are across all industries not based on specific industries
    • Audits include all I-9's not just current employees but also past employees
    • When ICE investigates any immigration issues, they take the Department of Labor with them looking for any labor-related compliance issues.

    THere has been a huge increase in audits.   Statistically, the number of audits has doubled each year since 2008, making it more and more likely your company could face one in the near future.

    Plan on attending this training session so you can learn how to protect your company/organization from costly I-9 mistakes.
