Form I-9 Fines Soaring: Inflation's Impact on Noncompliance Costs

The Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Improvement Act leads to further increases in fines.

The Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Improvement Act, signed by President Obama in 2015, mandates federal agencies to adjust civil monetary penalties with inflation. This adjustment means that fines, including those for Form I-9 violations, are on the rise.

As of 2024, fines for Form I-9 violations have increased by approximately three percent with new penalties ranging from a minimum fine of $281 to a maximum of $2,789 per violation.

Since December 2021, these adjustments have resulted in an overall increase of 18.57% in fines. Additionally, for employers utilizing E-Verify, fines for failing to resolve a final non-confirmation of employment eligibility have increased, now ranging from $973 to $1,942.

This trend underscores the importance of compliance to avoid financial penalties.
