In fact, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration Custom Enforcement (ICE), the enforcement arm of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), are using the I-9 Audits as one phase for assessing Employer’s Immigration compliance gaps and efforts. It is critical for Employers to conduct an internal audit on all their I-9 form process, Immigration VISAS, discrimination protections and other Immigration regulations to ensure an effective risk management strategy.
