Today, a privately-owned business must maintain vigilance; you cannot afford to be slapped with huge fines or receive bad publicity because you’ve violated immigration laws. However, that’s precisely what can happen if you fail to maintain properly the employment records of the immigrants you’ve hired. The most serious allegations and charges can shut down a business temporarily or even permanently. For advice and help with I-9 compliance, or if your business is currently under scrutiny from immigration authorities, immediately contact an experienced Glendale business immigration lawyer at MC @ FC Law.
GENERAL COUNSEL FOR HR AND I-9 COMPLIANCE
The attorneys and staff of MC @ FC Law have years of experience providing general counsel services to HR departments at businesses of all kinds and sizes. The “I-9” form, officially called the Employment Eligibility Verification form, must be completed by all U.S. employers for all employees, kept on file, and made available for inspection by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. When an immigrant is not authorized to work in the United States, hiring that person is a crime – and a costly blunder. MC @ FC Law trains HR departments regarding their legal obligations and helps businesses implement effective I-9 compliance procedures. If you are accused of non-compliance, an MC @ FC Law attorney can aggressively defend your business, clear up any misunderstandings, and let you get back to work with as little legal aggravation as possible.
