Food for Thought - C01 – Caught!

It is illegal to hire anyone not authorized to work in the U.S. 

Laws work well when everyone obeys them, but we all know we don’t live in a perfect world.

In the following, you will see what happens when people decide the law is something that applies to everyone else; just not them.   Caught!

Food for Thought – HR 2 Document Examination

Food for Thought – HR 2

Document Examination

In the previous Post, Food for Thought – HR, we addressed the importance of non-discrimination for new hires as well as their paperwork, and the use of  “due diligence” and “good faith” when addressing documentation being presented by new hires.

Unless you’re a forensic specialist, no one expects you to be an expert, but what should you look for when examining the documents in front of you?

Please try to keep in mind that sometimes not having a specific document, or having a document returned, it doesn’t necessarily mean the person is attempting fraud.  Sometimes, especially with documents; life happens.  Fires, floods, storms, moving...all these things happen and sometimes documents get lost, and some are more easily replaced than others.

One thing to remember is, a missing or incorrect document may be reason to raise an eyebrow, but not necessarily an alarm.

An article, written by the staff of verifyi9.com, addresses the employers’ responsibility for some “common sense” when looking at documents, and shows some examples of what to look for.

More on this subject to come in future posts.
