ICE raids can be both devastating to operations and distressing to employees. But as recent raids on 7-Eleven and the subsequent public statements reveal, any employer could be in ICE’s crosshairs when it comes to potential immigration violations. In this new era of extreme vetting, you should be on alert that non-compliance with federal immigration laws can result in significant consequences, including civil penalties for I-9 violations up to $2,191 per violation, civil penalties for knowingly hiring undocumented workers up to $21,916 per worker, and criminal penalties for managers and business owners of up to 10 years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine for harboring, smuggling, concealing or transporting undocumented workers for financial gain.
Join Fisher Phillips partner David Jones as he provides you with the tools you need to ensure that your business is doing everything that it can to comply with all applicable laws, minimize your risks for penalties, and prepare you for when ICE comes knocking.
Jones represents clients in complex matters relating to both immigration benefits and enforcement and in proceedings before the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Labor, the Department of Justice and the Department of State, as well as in matters related to citizenship status discrimination and export control compliance under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
