The Challenge

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) requires U.S. employers to verify the identity and work eligibility of newly hired employees, including U.S. citizens. To comply with this requirement, employers must complete the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 and retain Forms I-9 for government inspection.

The Form I-9 is a one-page document, but its completion is a complex process. Employers can be exposed to fines and penalties for errors and omissions on the form, or for failure to properly retain the form. Compliance is especially challenging for employers with multiple worksites and with employees in nonimmigrant visa status.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has stepped-up its enforcement of IRCA. Heightened enforcement has also expanded to the states with the proliferation of state worksite enforcement laws supplementing federal law. Under these laws, some employers are required to supplement Form I-9 completion by participating in E-Verify, an internet-based employment eligibility system operated by DHS in partnership with the Social Security Administration.

The heightened need for employer compliance with Form I-9 and other worksite enforcement laws presents an opportunity for employers to adopt an automated electronic system for Form I-9 completion and with one that integrates the use of E-Verify.
