Failure to Comply with IRCA
If an employer fails to provide proof of an employee’s legal right to work in the U.S. (Form I-9), the employer can face serious legal and financial ramifications. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) oversees IRCA compliance and may impose penalties or prosecute an employer for not properly completing Form I-9 or for knowingly hiring an employee that is not legal to work in the U.S.
If an employer fails to properly complete, retain, or turn-over its I-9 Forms during an inspection, the employer could be fined anywhere from $100 to $1,100 per I-9 Form. If an employer knowingly hires workers who are not legal to work in the U.S., the employer could face a civil penalty of $250 to $11,000 per employee. Some employers may also face time behind bars for repeatedly hiring illegal workers.
