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.
