I have a friend whose workforce has started to include many Spanish-speaking employees. She received a letter from the Social Security Administration saying that 59 of her current employees'names do not match their social security numbers. In response to that letter, her department attended a meeting from the INS that informed them on how to detect falsified documents for the I9. Now, it is working, and she is not hiring many applicants because of failure to provide proper I9 documents. However, she wants to know if she can save time and money by asking (but not requiring, obviously, for 3 business days after hire date, if they are hired) for I9 documents prior to the interview for ALL applicants. What do you think?
