As the season approaches, I find myself growing more concerned about I-9 compliance and the protection it provides from hiring illegal alien workers. I have friends in other companies that seem to think that if the documents look good, then we are protected. Howerer, I know theire is an 800 number you can call and the SSA will verify that SSN and names match. I also know of a company that exclusively uses a staffing company to send them seasonal workers and they are not concerned about compliance, because if the workers come from a service, then the service is liable. I tend to think this is going to blow up in there faces. I am not sure that this is really protection against being fined. What do you all think ? I dont want an immigration discussion. I am in the need of more workers than last year and this past year I found it difficult to find legal, drug free workers. What do you do to ensure you dont hire illegal aliens? or what are your strategies for finding good workers ?
