PACKAGING COMPANY FINED THOUSANDS FOR BACKDATING I-9s

OCAHO ordered a California-based Liberty Packaging Inc. to pay $12000 for acting in bad faith by backdating 18 I-9 forms following a NOI (Notice of Inspection). The fine was lowered from $17000 by an Administrative Law Judge because they were a small employer with no previous violations.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement became suspicious because markings on some of the forms implied that they had been completed after the respective date of hire. The case is USA v. Liberty Packaging Inc., Case Number 14A00027, before the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Immigration Review, Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO).
