Employers Need to Prepare for Immigration Reform Now

EMPLOYERS NEED TO PREPARE FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM NOW. According to Immigration and Employment Attorney, ELI KANTOR, Employers need to start preparing for Immigraition Reform now. Regardless of what the final immigration reform bill looks like or even if no bill passes at all, one thing is certain - there will be increased enforcement of employer sanctions. Just as the IRS made all employers into deputy tax collectors, Immigration is making employers deputy immigration inspectors, by requiring them to complete form I-9 for all employees and also by now requiring them to verify the accuracy of their employees' social security numbers when they receive "mismatch letters" from the social security administration. Enforcement of employer sanctions has already increased and will increase substantially. Therefore, employers should do preventative I-9 audits to verify that they have accurate and complete I-9 forms for all of their employees. For further information regarding I-9 audits, contact Eli Kantor, Esq. at (310) 274-8216
