Comply With New I-9 Form Guidelines to Avoid Penalties (Baldwin County Extension Report)

Penalties could be heavy for farmers filing to comply with new I-9 Form guidelines.

“Do it as if your job depended on it.” Organizers say, that’s the advice one business law attorney is dispensing to farmers and other business owners to underscore the importance of complying with the new federal I-9 form, which will go into effect on May 8.

I-9 compliance, which many business owners, especially farmers and other small business owners, already find difficult, will get even harder when this new form goes into effect, says Tommy Eden, an attorney with Constangy, Brooks and Smith, a national law firm representing large and small business employers throughout the United States.
