Guide | Plan for an I-9 Compliance Audit


When an employer brings on a new hire, an I-9 form must be filled out to verify the new employee’s identity and authorization to work in the United States. An I-9 compliance audit is designed to verify employment eligibility of all employees and ensure employers are following legal hiring practices. Because of this, it is good practice to undergo regular I-9 compliance audits.

Business immigration attorney Russell Ford, Founding Partner of FordMurray, has authored a 13-page guide on conducting an I-9 compliance audit to help employers understand the I-9 audit process and the importance of I-9 compliance.
