The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services did a recent audit of a New York City-based construction firm’s I-9 forms that relate to the right to work in the United States.
They found that the company didn’t have forms for some workers, some forms were incomplete and some had incorrect information.
An accounting firm has since gone in to audit the forms and come up with procedures to make sure they’re done as required in the future.
“We told them we would do an I-9 remediation to fix it and develop a plan to implement that process for them to be totally up to date,” Jeff Agranoff, human resources consultant principal at Grassi & Co. in Jericho, said. “That led to terminating some employees not eligible to work in the U.S.”
