Employers Continue To Face Large Fines for I-9 Violations – $2 Million in Fines for a Hotel

October 13th, 2014 | by A.M. | Category: Compliance, I-9, ICE, News

Although the Form I-9 may on its face appear to be simple, it is imperative for employers and their human resource departments to ensure accuracy and full compliance with the Form I-9. Last year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) inspected the I-9 Forms of 3,127 employers and issued over $15 million in fines. One employer, Grand America Hotels and Resorts, a hotel and resort operator with several properties throughout the western United States, learned just how serious ICE is over I-9 audits by facing $2 million in fines and forced to spend an estimated $500,000 to create an acceptable I-9 compliance program.

Change in H-1B Work Location – To Amend or Not to Amend?

October 02nd, 2014 | by D.M. | Category: Articles, Employers, H-1B, News

Our office handles a substantial number of H-1B work visa petitions for a variety of U.S. employers and we often share our direct experiences with the H-1B work visa program.   This article is intended to share our experience and the current trends with respect to H-1B work visa petitions where there is a change in the job location once the H-1B work visa petition has been approved and during its validity term.    The lack of clear, direct and consistent guidance by USCIS makes it ever more important to carefully analyze a particular H-1B change in job site situation to avoid H-1B status disruption and/or revocation.
