Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes both citizens and noncitizens. An employer’s failure to verify employment eligibility and I-9 compliance may result in significant criminal and civil liabilities.
The Giron Kirby Law Group partners with employers to develop effective I-9 policies and compliance programs. Our experienced professionals guide company leadership in I-9 audits to help determine any potential issues, correct deficiencies, and develop effective training programs prior to any government-led inspections.
