During the last few years, the Obama administration has turned up the heat on employers who fail to properly prepare and retain Form I-9, which must be completed for all new hires employed in the United States. Form I-9 collects basic biographical information (name, date of birth, and address) from the employee and requires employers to record documentary proof that the employee is authorized to work in the U.S. While Form I-9 has been around for over 25 years, employers are only now starting to feel the enforcement squeeze because of an increasing number of government I-9 inspections.
