Increased Penalties for Immigration Violations

The ICE crackdown continues, with increased penalties for employers who knowingly employ unauthorized aliens that are now in affect.

  • First violation for knowing employment of an unauthorized alien, $375.00 (previously $275.00)
  • First violation maximum penalty, $3,200.00 (previously $2,200.00)
  • Multiple violations maximum penalty, $16,000.00 (previously $11,000.00)

All of these fines are per person. So if you’re employing 10 authorized aliens, it’s $375 per person you illegally employed.

Make sure to audit your employee files and I-9 procedures.
