The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has taken a renewed interest in I-9 compliance. Agents have increased scrutiny of employers’ records in an effort to decrease the number of illegal workers in the United States. As an employer, even if you follow the law by only employing legal residents and citizens, you are still legally required to have properly completed I-9 forms for every worker at your place of business. If you do not and the government finds out, you could face heavy fines, the closure of your business and even criminal charges.
At the Tausk Law firm, we represent businesses of all sizes during I-9 investigations. Clients throughout Texas seek our services because of our established reputation in immigration law and criminal defense.
