After hearing for months how ICE will be stepping up enforcement of undocumented workers, word comes from Mississippi that the largest ever raid has taken place in the workplace – 595 Howard Industries workers were arrested last month.
It remains unknown if company executives will be arrested.
The fines against employers are increasing, the enforcement has dramatically elevated, and now it’s time to make sure you’re compliant with all I-9 and related requirements.
If it can happen to a large company like Howard Industries, it can happen to you.
