Employers, Prepare for Continued Increase of Immigration & I-9 Audits

In 2018, employers experienced a dramatic spike in investigations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) nationwide. ICE has significantly increased I-9 audits and worksite raids in states, counties, and cities with “sanctuary” status, and this continues going into 2019.


I-9 forms are used by ICE to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals. An I-9 audit, whether conducted by ICE or internally, will examine the immigration status of your workers and your compliance with federal immigration laws. Any business may be subject to an I-9 audit, and regardless of whether employers think they have employees who require immigration support, employers should realize the risks for noncompliance.

Before coming to your facility and conducting an investigation, ICE will send a Notice of Inspection, asking for I-9s and related documentation within a short period of time (as little as three (3) days). To conduct a raid, ICE is required to present a search warrant from a judge and demonstrate probable cause. Make sure to retain a copy of the search warrant for your records. It is feasible to monitor the search to ensure the ICE agents stay within the scope of the warrant. Lastly, be prepared for attention from the media after a raid.


Recommended Actions to Reduce the Risk of an ICE raid:

  1. Develop an I-9 compliance program to implement a system for storing I-9 records and a Human Resources professional to oversee this program.

  2. Complete missing or lost I-9 forms. Payroll records can be used to double check that you have all I-9 forms required for current and/or prior employees.

  3. Train employees on how to properly fill out an I-9 form, and what actions managers should take when they are made aware that an employee may not be authorized to work in the US.

  1. Conduct an internal I-9 audit and correct any errors that may have been found. It may be a good idea to consult a third party to conduct I-9 audits as well.

  2. Establish a rapid-response team to handle ICE raids and immediately contact company management and lawyers.

Martha's Corner: Winery Receives $10,000+ in Fines
19 March, 2019

On October 1, 2018, a California winery was inspected and received over $10,000 in fines from OSHA.

A general overview of a few of the Citations issued includes:

  • Portable ladders/Step ladders
  • Running Cords/cables through doorways, windows, or similar openings
  • Improper use of PPE/No use of PPE
  • Improper labeling
  • More....

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, OSHA generally has regulatory authority where an "employer and employee" relationship exists. In recent years, OSHA has expanded this definition and thus, its regulatory authority, to include contractors who work on your property/facilities (i.e., maintenance, labor, events staff) using the theory of "Host Employer". If you have questions on how this can affect your operations, please contact us.

Many mistakes can be made by employers during (and after) a regulatory inspection (i.e., providing too much information, answering questions not asked by the compliance officer, not preparing employees if interviews are requested, not asking for an informal hearing post issuance of citations, etc.). Heill Safety Solutions' staff has represented employers during OSHA inspections (as Employer Representative) as well as testified on behalf of employers as technical matter experts.
