Retro9 Makes I-9 Auditing Easy

NewsJobApp Network is a pioneer in the development of automated hiring systems and has recently introduced Retro9, a product that digitizes the I-9 form. Using Retro9, an employer can now manage their audits easily and efficiently, making the job much less stressful.

Ever since the federal government’s U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) decided to more strictly regulate employment eligibility, life has become more difficult for US businessmen. They are burdened by the enormous paperwork they have to finish in hiring an employee, particularly the I-9 form. It is not easy to fill the I-9 form, as it is a highly regulated form that has strict rules for compliance. Hence, 68 percent of the total I-9 forms being filled end up being erroneous. The employers are charged $110 to $100 for each I-9 from with mistake. In July 2011, nearly 2,338 employers ended up paying a fine of nearly $100,000 for submitting such forms. They complained it is impossible to get ready the I-9 forms for all their employees in just 3 days time before the audits.

Retro9 pinpoints 185 possible errors in the filled forms, grades the forms and provides useful tips to correct the mistakes. Ken Lang, the Vice President at JobApp, states that this one-click e-verification product “proactively address compliance issues and greatly improves the I-9 process and accuracy.”
