Workplace I-9 Compliance
GHP has substantial experience representing employers concerning their I-9 obligations. We also advise employers on the procedures and obligations related to the E-Verify program. We provide internal audits of I-9 compliance to help employers correctly and efficiently meet their employment eligibility verification obligations, as well as representation following an inspection of employer records by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Following an ICE Notice of Inspection, GHP will work with employers to respond to document requests in an appropriate manner. Where ICE issues a Notice of Intent to Fine proposing a monetary penalty of the employer, GHP represents employers seeking to minimize their liability.
Our firm has successfully represented employers in settlement negotiations with ICE and also in litigation before the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer and at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, resulting in significant fine reductions for employers.
