Soon, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will announce the creation of an I-9 Audit Fusion Center. This center will be staffed by approximately 20 forensic auditors who will assist local DHS offices executing I-9 audits for large employers. With the creation of this new center, employers can expect DHS to ramp up enforcement and conduct I-9 audits of larger employers. It is more important than ever for employers to ensure their I-9s are in good order, provide I-9 training for employees handling I-9 completion and compliance, and, for those larger employers, to ensure that there is a consistent company-wide policy in place for the treatment of I-9s and the increased possibility of an I-9 audit.
