ICE Launches Stepped Up Audits of I-9 Employment Verification Records

July 1, 2009 - The USCIS has served 652 businesses with audit notices by issuing Notices of Inspection (NOIs) to 652 businesses nationwide. This bold initiative by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the largest initiative ever pursued by ICE in such a period.

The notices alert businesses that ICE will be inspecting their hiring records to determine whether the businesses are complying with the I-9 employment eligibility verification requirements. The businesses that are subject to the notices were selected based on leads and information obtained through other investigative means.
