Pre I-9 Audit Planning: Prepare for the Worst and Hope for the Best (Part 1 of 2)

"An employer’s first task is to identify the worst possible outcomes of an audit based upon the employer’s individual company characteristics. The best way to do this is to sit down with experienced audit counsel who can assist in developing the worst case scenario list. If there is ever a time when mom’s age old advice, “prepare for the worst and hope for the best” applies, this is it.  Below, I discuss the top eight most common worst-case scenarios and provide suggestions as to how to begin to think about them and draft effective policies before an audit is undertaken." - Valentine A.
