Long Island 7-Eleven Franchisee Fined For Having Committed Serious Substantive I-9 Violations

A company operating a Long Island 7-Eleven was recently found to have been in violation of its employee I-9 obligations. Specifically, ICE’s investigation resulted in findings that the company failed to prepare or present I-9 forms and to have improperly completed the I-9 forms it did present. The substantive violations included missing signatures, missing dates, missing names, missing document numbers, missing pages, and backdated forms. While the Office of Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO) did side with ICE as to the seriousness of the violations, they did find that the government failed to prove the company acted in bad faith and reduced the ICE imposed penalties from the $34,408 to $15,450.
