These days, private businesses simply can’t afford to get hit with federal fines and bad press related to violations of U.S. immigration law. Unfortunately, this is exactly what happens when businesses that hire immigrants, or those that transfer foreign citizens to U.S. based offices, fail to properly maintain immigrant employee records. If the allegations are serious enough, the entire business could even be temporarily or permanently shut down.
Affordable General Counsel for HR and I-9 Compliance
The attorneys and staff of MC @ FC Law, which maintains offices in Las Vegas, Nevada and Los Angeles, California, as well as multiple offices in various foreign countries, have several years of experience providing I-9 compliance representation and general counsel services to HR departments in companies of all sizes.
The I-9 form is required by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services and is officially known as Employment Eligibility Verification. The form, which must be filled out by all employers on all employees that they hire, is then required to be kept on file at company offices and is subject to inspection by USCIS officials at any time. Hiring someone who is not authorized to work in the United States is a serious offense that the courts strictly enforce, and can be a costly mistake even to the business that may have been fooled into hiring an unauthorized worker.
With MC @ FC Law, individuals in the HR departments are trained in their legal requirements and shown how to effectively implement an I-9 compliance program. Later, if legal representation is required in the face of a government inspection or allegations of illegal conduct relating to immigration policies, an attorney from MC @ FC Law can respond with haste to ensure the rights of the business are preserved. Should the case go to court, an MC @ FC Law attorney will craft a diligent defense on behalf of the client business so it can focus on getting back to business as usual.
