I-9 Immigration Compliance & Audit Attorney
Our attorneys train employers, institutional clients such as hospitals, colleges/universities and other corporate clients to ensure compliance with the I-9 process. As the focus switches to employers, our team actively engages in sampling and random auditing to ensure compliance. We also encourage all employers to engage our services in reorganizations, corporate mergers, acquisitions and related transactions. We also counsel clients when the U.S. government investigates alleged immigration violations, I-9 investigations or in responding to subpoenas. The penalties for I-9 violations can be quite severe, often leading to bankruptcy for many employers. Whether your company is large or small, compliance with the I-9 process is critical, although often overlooked. We work closely with your Human Resources department to train them in this area of the law and avoid costly mistakes.
LABOR CONDITION ATTESTATION AND LABOR DEPARTMENT ASSISTANCE
Our firm also represents clients in ensuring compliance with the Department of Labor’s regulatory requirements relating to the Labor Condition Applications for H-1B petitions. With an increase in LCA auditing and PERM auditing, our firm ensures that our clients comply with the DOL requirements. This includes periodical reviews of files, training of staff, random auditing and data entry to avoid mistakes. As the enforcement aggressively shifts to employers, our goal is to protect our corporate clients from fines and disruptions in their labor force by making sure that all applicable laws and regulations are followed.
