I-9 & E-VERIFY COMPLIANCE
Laws concerning foreign workers can prove complicated and burdensome for U.S. employers. There are serious consequences for failing to follow government regulations around workers who come from other countries.
Helping You Maintain Compliance with Immigration Laws
We can help you review your business policies or counsel you during an audit. At Gardner Gordon we understand the specific laws concerning employer compliance in hiring and onboarding, and we know the issues impacting your foreign workers.
With a reputation for successful client advocacy and informed counsel, we can help you maintain compliance with immigration laws.
Some of the cases we handle include the following:
I-9 Compliance – Every employee, regardless of whether they are a U.S. citizen or foreign worker, must fill out an Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. We recommend proactive measures to ensure that your procedures are in line with the I-9 compliance laws in order to avoid consequences from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or the U.S. Department of Labor. Our attorneys can help you review your company policies and, if you have received a notice of inspection from ICE, we can counsel you before and during the audit.
E-Verify Audits – E-Verify is a web-based program that matches the information from your employees’ I-9 forms with the information contained in government records. Call Gardner Gordon to learn more or for representation before E-Verify officials.
Social Security and No-Match Letters – An employer will receive a no-match letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA) if an employee is found to not have a Social Security number. This could mean that an employee is ineligible to work in the U.S. If you received a no-match letter from the SSA, contact Gardner Gordon to discuss your next steps.
