October 2008
Venulex Legal Summaries;2008 Q4, Special section p1
The article offers insights on how to safeguard a company in the U.S. during a time of unprecedented raids and regulations. It is illegal for U.S. employers to employ individuals who are not authorized to work in the country since the enactment of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) in 1986. Meanwhile, more aggressive methods of punishing violators have been employed by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), relying heavily on worksite raids that result in criminal charges.
