All U.S. employers are responsible for completion and retention of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and non-citizens. On the form, the employer must verify the employment eligibility and identity documents presented by the employee and record the document information on the Form I-9. The InfoCheckUSA verification system automates this process for employers and stores the I9 forms electronically making the process simple and easy to use.
Employers will be fined for hiring illegal immigrants. Under the Federal Government plan the minimum penalty for willingly hiring an unauthorized worker will be $375. The maximum penalty is $3,200, and the maximum for multiple violations is $16,000.
