Picture this: your bustling warehouse gears up for the holiday season, hiring a group of seasonal employees to meet the surge in demand. Your company invests valuable time, resources, and effort into seamlessly integrating these new team members. All seems well until the jolting revelation that two of these employees are not eligible to work in the United States.
The consequences are swift and unforgiving. The federal government levies substantial fines, costing your company thousands of dollars. Production suffers during the busiest season due to being short-staffed, and employee morale takes a hit.
This situation, while unfortunate, is a stark reality for many businesses. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Ensuring the eligibility of your employees is not just a best practice; it’s a legal necessity. In this blog, we delve into the critical role of legal compliance in hiring and the importance of comprehensive employment eligibility verifications, so you can shield your company from the harsh consequences.
Navigating Employment Eligibility in Today’s Competitive Job Market
Today’s job market is competitive, and finding the right employees for your business can be difficult. However, the process of hiring new talent comes with its own set of challenges, particularly when it comes to verifying employment eligibility.
Neglecting this important step in the rush to get candidates working right away can result in serious financial penalties, reaching up to $2,700 per instance on each I-9 form. But it’s not just the financial ramifications you need to be aware of.
That’s why it’s important to protect your business by including comprehensive employment verification services as part of your hiring process. Let’s explore why they matter below.
Why Employment Eligibility Verifications Matter
As demonstrated above, hiring employees without proper vetting can be a costly mistake. This is where e-Verify, a powerful online tool, comes into play. It confirms the eligibility of employees to work legally in the United States.
Ensuring that your workforce is composed of individuals who have the right to work in the country is not only a legal requirement but also essential for the smooth and successful operation of your business. Here’s how Bonney’s verification process is designed to work for you.
