Worksite Compliance

Washington, D.C. Immigration Compliance Attorney

In recent years, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Labor (DOL) have significantly increased efforts at work site enforcement. This stepped-up campaign to ensure greater compliance includes audits of I-9s and surprise H1b site inspections.

A Close Eye On Foreign Worker Employment

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires all employers to comply with Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. Compliance is not easy by any means. An important task at Bhagat & Associates is guiding clients through the maze of federal laws and regulations. The consequences of noncompliance are severe, as I-9 compliance has become a primary area of focus.

Your business can’t be expected to know the fine details of I-9 compliance. For example, when is it permissible to require documentation from employees? Or exactly when does an employer have “constructive knowledge” of a worker’s status? Bhagat & Associates knows these fine points so you don’t have to.

At Bhagat & Associates, we help companies minimize the cost of being found in noncompliance.
