Info on Employer AB 450 Requirements,
Employee Notices, and I-9 Compliance
A recent (Feb. 14, 2018) Sacramento Bee article includes a review of AB 450 (Immigrant Worker Protection Act) requirements for employers. Click here for the article. It alludes to the forms that the Labor Commissioner has recently posted for employers to provide required notice to employees in the event of a DHS/ICE enforcement visit, including I-9 audits. Please click here for the Labor Commissioner/DLSE webpage with the AB 450 employee notification form. The Spanish version of the form is found on this webpage.
ICE audits of employer I-9 files have been an ongoing part of DHS-ICE activities for many years. The recent activity does not appear to be a significant escalation. Employers seeking guidance on proper completion of I-9s should review the guidance document M-274.
