Digital Records Ensure Proof of HR Compliance with Federal Hiring Laws
JoTo PR Client, Accu-Image, was highlighted in a TLNT article titled, What Will Immigration Find If It Inspects Your Business?
When University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts was murdered in July 2018, it was discovered that her killer, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, was in the country illegally, with the aid of forged documents. Four years earlier, he had managed to gain employment at Yarrabee Farms in Brooklyn, Iowa (where Tibbetts was killed) using an Iowa ID and a Social Security card, which was later determined to be fake. Fines for hiring an undocumented immigrant range $250 to over $2,200 per illegal employee for first time offenders. Second offenses often cost $2,000-$5,000, and a pattern of illegal hiring practices can lead to fines in the millions for large companies, and even a jail stint of up to 6 months.
Businesses need to be prepared and have all their records in order. A digitized record management system is the most effective. When served with a Notice of Inspection from ICE, your business will have three days to present them with all the necessary paperwork and I-9’s. Digital records ensure everything you need to prove compliance is where it needs to be. Having HR documents in compliance with hiring laws and secured with digitized record management adds a safety net to help avoid complicated issues.
