Immigration & Workplace Compliance
As an employer, you are responsible for making sure you only hire personnel legally qualified to work in this country. Failure to maintain these standards can critically impede or prevent your ability to continue to do business. The government is imposing huge fines and other sanctions on companies caught employing undocumented workers, including criminal penalties as well. In one high-profile case, the employees themselves sued their employer, a situation that has already adversely impacted the company's profile in the media. Keeping your roster clean shows good faith and due diligence, not only to the government but to the public. Additionally, this is not only an economic issue and a criminal issue, but also has a national and global security dimension. Since 2001, the federal government has directed a 60 percent increase in border security funding,* a clear sign that the government is taking the legal workforce very seriously. Knowing who you are hiring is critical to the security of your business. You are further responsible for confirming the accuracy and truthfulness of the information provided by all new hires, regardless of their position. Knowing about the past employment history, criminal convictions and contacts with the legal system of your new hires and suppliers will help protect your biggest asset, your firm's reputation. SES has the capacity to vet all applicants and persons you do business with on a global basis and confirm that there are no hidden issues that may have a negative impact on your organization.
